Lisa Norden wins the US Open Dallas Triathlon

For the 4th year in a row I won the US Open Dallas Triathlon.

It was a great race and I was enjoying myself out on the Texan roads.

It seems like I managed to gain some nice fitness through my last  block of races. A task I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to pull off.

The bike worked so well I and I came in to T2 with a good lead. I had expected to play catch up going out on the run. Having the luxury of a lead I could afford to run comfortable at a good pace – without having to smash myself for the start.

It also gave me time to clean myself up…

I had managed to get a chocolate gel all over my light grey race suit.

I didn’t even want to think about what other people would have thought had happened… Grabbing water I washed off as much as I could – hoping I would be fine for the finishing photos.

Lesson to self – never use a chocolate gel while racing in a light colored suit.

This was my last race for 2011.

I’m now looking into a couple of easy weeks. Most of which will be spent on the beach.
