Hello everyone!



We leave for Hawaii on March 21st. Less than two months away. I can hardly believe it. I've been trying to read anything and everything on triathlons to prepare. Apparently, the coral is pretty nasty during the swim portion of the tri. People have been cut, etc. But my goal is to scout out a perfect location a few days prior to the race.  I just saw the bike route and its on some sort of highway. Yikes!  but at least its not too hilly. The run begins over lava and ends with sand. I can't even imagine what the 6 mile  run will feel like. I hope my brain shuts down and my body just pushes me through.



As if I don't have enough to do, I joined a women's lacrosse club team here in Seattle.  I figured the games/practices will help me gain better sprinting ability and agility. Just another fun way to stay in shape!  I haven't played lacrosse since I tore my ACL reconstruction.  But at today's practice, I shook the lax cob webs off and ended pretty well. Unfortunately, we did hill sprints after practice which wasn't the most fun but what doesn't kill me is only going to make me a 100 times stronger.



I'll check back at one month pre-race.






Hope you are all well! xoxo
