Next up was TRI for the Cure a Sprint distance triathlon held each August in Cherry Creek reservoir. Three friends registered for TRI for the Cure and for all three this was their 1st triathlon experience. Anne, Heather and Christine joined me in training for the event and all three finished, proud and strong…well done ladies!
My training and race prep continued but my persisting leg injury hampered by ability to focus on the running aspect of my training and race. The dreaded up hill run on the Cherry Creek dam road was tough. Still I was pleased with my results and finished in the top 5% overall. In 2012, I plan on supporting the event as a volunteer “swim buddy”.
