This was my 1st Tri of 2014. Last year, I volunteered to advance my Tri education. I swore I would do it this year...especially since it's about 3.5 miles from my front door! Yeah...Paradise!
I love this shot I took just before dawn of the Tri Race Site!
Yeah, life is beautiful!
The Transition area at dawn..
Site Check In & Registration!
Yes, That's My Girl, DSSECRETS, taking care of the Triathletes!
My Tri Partner, Rob, Our dear friend & Race Director Extraordinaire Suzanne Henslee, & me just before our swim wave!
My Sponsor, Outspokin Bicycles Owner, & great friend Val Tavanese!
Not only does she have the best bikes, the best training classes, and the best staff, she gives back to the community! Thank you for making me a better Triathlete, Val! Much love!
Tony Dungy, former NFL player, coach & Super Bowl Champion, giving the Invocation on the beach before our swim! So emotional, inspiring & uplifting, he brought tears to my eyes. What a great man! He also raced as a part of the Relay Team!
Coming out of my swim wave!
Leaving T1 for a 'lil bike ride!
No question, this was my best Tri performance to date. BUT there's lots of room for improvement! The best thing is that I truly enjoyed the Dunedin Tri and had so much fun with the friends that I train and enjoy life with every day! Yep, I live in Paradise.
I had to include a group shot of our weekly Outspokin Open Water Swim Group!
I train with some of the best Triathletes on the Gulf Coast! They have elevated my confidence, performance, motivation, & inspiration! I'm so blessed!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
