View my Pikes Peak Ascent/Marathon results
6 Triathlons in my first year and never placed last!
What I like about trail/mountain running:
It's very... difficult! New Challenges makes life exciting!
Worst running experience:
My 1st triathlon was in Avon, Co, 2001. I had seriously undertrained and was over confident in my abilities, especially at that elevation. The swim wasn't bad (800y), but the bike was where it became worse. I was thinking, "Climb like Lance" until I was a mere 1/2 mile from the bottom of an 1,800 foot climb. I'd had my new bike for 10 days now and didn't know that climbing was different than coasting around the block a couple of times. I did end up finishing the bike and the run and managed to have everyone feeling sorry for me. After 4 days, I was able to stand without throwing up. I've been hooked on triathlons ever since!!!
I want to complete the 2003 Ascent and to finish an Ironman.
