Want to meet by the tennis courts, by the YWCA and walk the running portion of the route? Would that help or would that just make you more nervous? Let me know.

I'm so proud of you!!!! I have wanted to do the Rose for several years, but always chicken out. You will do great! I would love to walk with y'all on the 18th - however, depends on family commitments. Please post when and where. If I'm free, I'd love to meet up with you.
Go, Mary!!!!!

Wonderful - I'll throw it out there then....what time? 2ish was working earlier - gives time to run errands and get home (or go out if that's your thing) to dinner. Let me know what works for you and then I'll throw it out to the group.

Hey Jen, would love to walk on the 18th! Maybe I can pick your brain for some tips and pointers. What about Mel and the other ladies?

Want to walk the afternoon of the 18th to get you all psyched up and relaxed at the same time? Anyone else want to?

There were folks of all sizes - the great thing about Ramblin is that it is not a competition. It is a cheering that you are even out there early on a Sunday morning. There is a great feeling of camraderie and (without sounding cheesy) love that each of every one of us was taking back their health and life, pushing themselves to do something they maybe never thought they could do before. It was amazing and trust me, you will not be on the course too long at the end (I've done that before at another race so I know how awkward that is - they do not do that and would not need to hang around very long, you'd be surprised how fast it goes.)

I trained with a woman larger than you - she kicked my butt. Proof that it is not about size,

I don't know, I don't know!! Were there folks of all sizes when you did it in 2010? I mean, I think I can do it, but I don't want staff waiting on me to go home at the end. KWIM?

The Ramblin Rose is a women's only Triathlon. It's in Winston on August 19, 2012 down at the Gateway YWCA. http://www.endurancemag.com/winston-salem-
home It is a 225 yard swim - 8 mile bike- 2 mile run.

I do see they have a new bike course (I did it in 2010 and that was definitely the hardest part for me) - hmmm...

So are you doing it Mary?

What is Rambling Rose?

Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Phil 2:3-4.
