I’m having some technical difficulties with my internal SD card reader this morning. For some reason it doesn’t want to read the card and I’ve learned in situations like this that it’s best to walk away rather than stress over it. This isn’t the first time I’ve had this problem and I’m hoping it will work itself out later. *fingers crossed* However, I did want to check in and say Kelly and I are currently high in the sky and on our way to good ole Cincinnati. Yay!
We did cut it close this morning with making it to the airport, but luckily we didn’t have any bags to check and security was a breeze. We were able to grab some egg and cheese bagel sandwiches and arrived at our gate just as our zone was boarding. Cutting it close or perfect timing? We’ll let you be the judge.
I may not have any photos to share, but I do have a giveaway that I hope makes up for it!
2012 Danskin Triathlon Series Giveaway
The Danskin Triathlon Series is made up of 8 sprint distance triathlons (½ mile swim, 12 mile bike, 3 mile run) across the country that empower women by challenging them in a motivational, supportive, and safe setting with “cheerleaders” every step of the way. Select Races offer a Super Sprint distance option. Participation can be on an individual or Relay Team basis – making them even more first-timer friendly.
I’m not sure what it is, but for some reason triathlons feel 10x more intimidating that regular road races. I know when I checked-in at the start of my first triathlon, my stomach was full of butterflies. I felt like I was the only newbie in a crowd of seasoned veterans. Everyone looked like they knew what they were doing and I didn’t have a clue.
The goal of the Danskin Triathlon Series is to strip that intimidation factor a way. They foster a “girl power” environment that encourages first timers that they CAN do this. The race is about setting a personal goal, accomplishing that goal, and celebrating that accomplishment with your fellow competitors. I like that.
Whether you’ve always wanted to do a triathlon or are looking to do your second, third, fourth, or more – this is the race for you!
