NETS – “The Great Fairlee Triathlon”

Fairlee, VT, July 9, 2006
3/4 mi swim, 24 mi bike, 5 mile run
Another great weekend of race results- I am happy with my times (except in the swim, but can’t seem to get in the training for that discipline right now).It was a beautiful day, the water was warm, I wore my wetsuit, (maybe that’s what slowed me down…), my buddy Kim beat my time in the swim by 3 minutes! The only bonus to being slow in the water is the thrill of passing so many people on the bike and the run. : ) I was flying!
The bike course was an out and back, not the old loop up Thetford hill that I remember, and the turnaround point was very tricky…. the run was the same loop around Lake Morey, but I sinched my shoes up so tight that my toes got numb…. I loosened them at mile 2. Ugh. My transitions were fast, but I really need some new sneakers (blisters again!). Looking forward to this weekend off to do some long bike rides and some more distance on the kayak to prepare for the Sea to Summit which is 7/22. See below my time / splits – very excited to see if I may have qualified for Nationals, which is one of my goals for the summer!
