So…I am doing a Triathlon

Don’t go getting too excited now. While I am competing in the Olympic distance New Jersey State Triathlon, I am not doing it alone. I am part of a relay team with two of my very favorite people! Can you guess which leg I am doing? Swim, bike, run of course! My portion is 10k (6.2 miles) along what I keep reading is a “very flat shady” course. And randomly, a 6 mile run fits exactly perfectly into my marathon training schedule! It’s meant to be.

The beautiful Stella (former division I collegiate swimmer) will be taking to the waters for the 1500 meter swim!

yes, she will be fueled with martinis 😉

And my hero, Joe, will be pedaling his little tush off on the 25.5 mile bike ride!

Joe & Bruce (aka his first love)

Joe has competed in tri’s before, so I am naming him captain of team JLS. I am super excited and you can be sure a great re-cap will follow!

Wish us luck!!

1. Are you racing this weekend?

2. Have you ever done a tri?

  2. Have fun! You’ll be right near me (I live in Central NJ). Good luck! Never done a tri…I can’t swim, lol.

    • Thanks!! I’ve never wanted to do a tri before because of the swim part too! I’m actually a really good swimmer and use to be an open water life guard, but something about competitively swimming freaks me out! haha – I will stick with the relays for now 🙂

      • My 2 friends just did a 70.3 and that was their biggest fear…open water with tons of other swimmers, lol. My one friend had a panic attack the first 1/2 mile but then settled in (and made it to transition thankfully, lol!. Relays sound good, haha!

  3. Good luck this weekend girl. I’m sure yall will kick major bootayy!!

    nope, never done a tri.. maybe someday??

  4. That’s awesome! Your team is going to do awesome!!

  5. Good luck! Sounds like you’ve got a very solid team put together. I haven’t done triathlons–can’t afford a bike and my tiny T rex arms don’t really do swimming–but I have friends who swear they’re tons of fun!

  6. Oooh, that’s so exciting! Good luck! I’ve never done a triathlon, but I’d love to one day.
