Me - "are you crazy?! I don't swim, I don't have a bike and I barley run"
This is such an incredible race. It is simply amazing to see that many women of all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities doing one incredible race. Because it's a sprint -Swim 750M (1/2 Mile)Bike 18.3K (11.4 Miles) Run 5K (3.1 Miles) it is totally doable for everyone. And they do everything the can to make it possible from training to swim buddies if your nervous about the swim. Believe me if I could do it I'm pretty sure anyone can! The last 2 years that I've done it it has sold out (although I don't think it is sold out yet!) I think there were about 3000 women! Crazy! All out there to support one cause. The whole day is pretty emotional from the beginning when you watch the survivors take off in a wave to the end as you watch women who never thought that they could do something like this, crossing the finish line. The feeling is one you won't believe. The power. There is nothing we women can't do!
I'm really excited to race Tri for the Cure again this year. (I am of course hoping to beat my time from last year. ) Although this means I can't be a swim buddy I do hope to be able to volunteer in some other capacity. So any of you Colorado women out there looking for a sprint to do on August 1st? There are several of you I'm still trying to meet up with!
