Another win in the US Open Dallas Triathlon
October 2nd, 2011 by Lisa
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 Â 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 lightÂ coloredÂ 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.
