This weekend was simply awesome! The triathlon season kicked off here in Oceanside with the Cali70.3 (I think this is the first year I haven't referred to it as Ralphs...those were the days!). Not only did I have friends coming to town for that, but others are in SD for work trips. I have been a busy, but very happy girl. Nothing makes me happier than quality time with good friends!!!
Friday featured a kick ass workout with Sierra, who was down from Pasadena. Our workouts aligned perfectly, and we killed it! We got in a long ride, then I hammered out an awesome 60min t-run (I kept telling myself it would be over quicker if I just ran faster. Sadly, a 60min run is a 60min run...but the mental game worked). Then I headed to the pool on my way up to Oceanside to visit those in town for the triathlon expo. Solid day of training indeed.
I had a chance to meet with the TYR crew, and it is official- I'm a TYR chic. I couldn't be more excited about this sponsorship. Seriously, it's like a childhood friend is back in my life. I grew up on TYR swimwear and am ecstatic to be part of their effort to increase their presence in the sport of triathlon. My roots are in swimming, and now my heart is in triathlon. The match is perfect!
From there it was off to happy hour. After a long day of training & socializing I realized I hadn't eaten nearly enough to get me through the day. This lead to me consuming a hamburger for the first time in over 6 years. Seriously good...but I'm probably good for another 6yrs now.
It's 5am and we're ready to get this party started!
That was my weekend in a nutshell. Thankfully it isn't over yet- more people to see, places to go and things to do!
