Why You Should Tri in 2009

I was going to do a top ten list, full of reasons why those of you who (for some reason or another) haven't joined us crazies in the swimming, biking, and running. FYI, the reasons included lycra and the fact that triathlon doesn't hurt nearly as bad as cyclocross.

But, after a little bit of thought, I realized that my primary testimonial for trying triathlon is way less tongue-in-cheek and way more visual. These aren't the only two reasons you should begin preparing (right now!) for a multisport event, but they're good ones.

What are those two good reasons?



And from where I stand, that's reason enough.


  1. I love that running pic of you.

    This post gave me an idea to write about all the reasons not do to a triathlon, but it was a very short post.

  2. Wow, love the before and after just proves that a person can do anything if they put their mind and attitude into it.

    You asked about my spin classes....they are going great. Last Friday I had all college-age girls in my class! That was a great feeling for me. I made sure we did lots of super spins, hee, hee! Yeah, the youngins were sweating. I'm antisipating I will get an influx of new beginners this month. Thanks for asking...your blog has been a great help for me.

  3. I am doing a sprint triathlon this year - either the Danskin or Irongirl. I am excited and scared at the same time.

  4. damn girl, that speaks volumes, especially of the effort you put into training :) i need to work on my 2009 race calander...
