My stay here in Gold Coast Australia to prepare and participate in the ITU World Triathlon Championships has been pretty epic thus far. I wanted to post a few photos for all of you before I finish up my race prep. For those of you interested in watching the race ITU triathlon (triathlon.org) will be streaming a live webcast of the race. My wave departs at 7:17am Gold Coast time (Female 30-34), which I believe (check me on this) is 4:17pm Denver time. My race number is 476. There are 90 women in my age group...90 of the fastest WOMEN IN THE WORLD. Okay, now that I got that out of my system, here's a little update of my week so far. I was super excited to get to Australia. Me and all my stuff made it there safe and sound, even after switching from domestic to international in LA.
Tomorrow is the big day. I plan to enjoy the experience and leave everything I have out there on the course. I came here to race and I'm ready to get it done. This experince has been soemthing else, it makes Ironman athletes seem mellow. The amount of nervous energy, fancy bikes, triathletes with attitude, and sperm helmets has been unbelievable. So, tomorrow I suit up with my name on my butt and dive off the dock with 89 other female 30-34 killer athletes.
