Change of heart...

I still plan to train with T3 for swimming (year around) but I decided today I am going to train with Gilbert's Gazelles instead for the marathon season. I know Gilbert will help me achieve my running goals, as noted below.

I can't wait...!

Maria and Jane, watch out. It looks like I will be joining the blue and white ranks next week...

Ironbabe Tri!

Well, what can I say. I took almost 10 minutes off my time from last year. If that isn't improvement, I don't know what is!

Most fabulous of all, the bike, Whitey, is fantastic. We averaged 18.4 mph today, which is a personal best for me on the bike. I will never race a road bike again. Next on the agenda, if she is good, some race wheels:)

More later...must.get.sleep.

In short the Austin city council wants to do away with/ limit races in the downtown/urban areas that will effect Austin traffic. Not good. Please clink on the link below and let the city council know this is not a good idea. Link to email the city council:
