Claytor Lake Triathlon Photos

Blew out my flip flop

Thanks to A Moment in Time Photography for taking photos at the Claytor Lake Triathlon a couple weeks ago. Here are the ones I found of myself. I raced the dude to the finish line…and won! My time was 1 hour and 33 minutes, a personal record for me. Maybe I can do TWO races next year!

Walk/Jog/Run…BIKE Club – August 13 @ Noon

I loved the New River Trail last week, so we’ll meet there again this week. Anyone who wants to come at noon for a short prayer and then we’ll take off to walk/jog/run or BIKE if you like. This week, I am going to bike hard 30 minutes, then jog 15 minutes immediately following (this is called a “brick” in the triathlon training world). BUT, you do what is best for you!

There is no cost for this, but there is a $4 parking fee for the State Park access. Just bring something to drink and think of your goal before you arrive so you know what you want to do for the day!

Walk/Jog/Run Club – August 6 @ Noon

This week, we’ll have the pleasure of walking/jogging/running on the partly shaded New River Trail! Meet at the caboose in Galax at noon and we’ll go. There is a $4 parking fee, so carpooling is cool if you can. I can only fit one other person in my vehicle due to car seats, but if you’re interested, you can text or call me at 276-779-3336. Read all the details here. Hope to see you there tomorrow!

Time to Train for a Tri!

I just registered for the Claytor Lake Sprint Triathlon that will be held September 12, 2015. It’s a half mile swim, 12.5 mile bike, and a 5k trail run. I have work to do!

My favorite resource for triathlons is “The Woman Triathlete” book. I need to get it out and make my plan for training. I have about 6 weeks till race day and my base fitness is good, but I need to work on intervals on my run and swim. The book has great workouts. I am going to pencil in my workouts on my calendar or I know I will not get to them.

I blogged on my personal blog a while back about Triathlon FAQs. Check it out if you have a minute. 🙂

Walk/Jog/Run Club – July 30 (I won’t be there)

June 2012 sunset on our hillside

I had been on a roll meeting at the Galax Rec Center at noon on Thursdays with anyone who wanted to walk/jog/run for an hour, but I can’t be there this Thursday (I have to work). However, if anyone wants to meet, I encourage you to do so! Just gather near the door around noon, set some goals, and take off! You can do it without me, I’m sure. 🙂

For the first week of August, we’ll need to meet elsewhere due to the Fiddler’s Convention. We can meet at the Caboose in Galax or Dannely Park and do the New River Trail that day. It will be a welcome change (just remember the $4 parking fee).

Let me know if you plan to be there this week (July 30) or next (August 6).

Walk/Jog/Run Club – July 23 @ Noon

Tomorrow’s weather looks good! High of 78, so that’s not TERRIBLE. 🙂

Interested in walking, jogging, or running with a small group? Join me & whoever else shows up at noon on Thursday, July 9 at the Galax Recreation Center. If it’s raining, meet in the lobby. If it’s nice, meet near the front entrance outside. We’ll open with a prayer & devotional, then figure out the group’s goals, then spend the next bit walking, jogging, and/or running. It’s my lunch break, so I have about an hour to be there. If you want to continue after I leave, go for it!

There is no cost for this. Just bring something to drink and think of your goal before you arrive so you know what you want to do for the day!

See ya there. Blessings!
