Christmas in April!!
So excited!!! My new Kestrel Airfoil Pro SL.....speedy fast and I think i'm going to call her "Bat Girl"!! Cute yet stealthily? Honored to ride Kestrel and cannot wait to test "her" out in a race!...THANK YOU KESTREL!!!!!
Trakkers team....we've already received quite a few goodies from our team and I was just in awe that there was yet *another* package coming (Mer claps!).....so, I opened the package and inside were the items to the left.....also an amazing Saucony bag and a full cycling kit (note: the shorts to the kit are not included in the pic because I wore them on my trainer ride this morning, thus they are not presentable at this time =0)......you're looking at a kick ass jersey, shirt and jacket!! Can't wait to suit up!!
It has occurred to me that I haven't said much about my team Trakkers in general, i've talked about them, but I wanted to take a couple of lines to explain what we've been up to! Basically most of us are on Twitter...I know, so for those of you who aren't on twitter or you think it may be pointless----i'm here to say that a TON of our team support comes from Twitter. It allows me to connect to some of my teammates who are far away and honestly, last week I was really sick----and I got a ton of "tweets" that were SO awesome, just wishing me to get well etc. It's funny, you wouldn't think a team that is spread out through the country could develop a "closeness." .....well, Trakkers has outdone themselves, what an amazing group of people.
I love that everyone on the team, whether they're a parent or they're single, *everyone* is juggling something, some are injured, some are setting PR's in races, some are struggling to get in everyday training, some are able to train full-time. Whatever it is...everyone supports each other. HOW COOL! Just like high school sports minus the catty behavior (just kidding, Trakkers is WAY cooler than high school sports all round!) =0.
Anyway...a Trakkers is heading up it's Kickoff Event for the----Rev3Tri Race Series: KNOXVILLE. It's the first in the Rev3 Tri series this year, followed by Quassy and Cedar Point races. If you guys are curious to see what the "Rev3" Tri Series is all about....please just click on the link above! The whole idea is to combine family time with racing.....a brilliant idea! I'm trying my hardest to get to Cedar Point this year--it's going to be tough with our move, so i'm still on the fence as to whether i'll be able to make it or not!
Just an FYI: Tara Costa from the Biggest Loser is racing ALL THREE of the Rev3 Tri Races...and i'm a HUGE "Biggest Loser" fan....so i'm also secretly hoping to get to Cedar Point so I can stalk her. Ew----did I just write that? =0 (stalking her in a friendly way of course =0)
Anyway, I just wanted to write a bit more about my team and what we're all about.....since it's the first time i've ever been a part of a true triathlon team as an adult, it's been amazing and incredibly resourceful for me...especially with becoming a mom----it's nice to see other "tweets/facebook posts" about people who are juggling the same things I am---and how they seem to find a balance!
Over and out!
