Help! I'm the Prey

So I went for a 30 mile bike ride today. I got a route off of map my run and thought I would try it out here in Idaho. Very rural roads in farm land. I was minding my own business and I hear the scream of a hawk or some bird of prey. I look up and it is diving at me. I was so scared. I start yelling at the stupid bird to get away from me and waving my arms. He circled around me and came at me again. Finally, he flew away back to his telephone pole from whence he came but I was pretty shaken up. I had another 15 miles to go now with the added worry of more bird attacks. It sure reminded me of "The Birds".

Anyway I want to wish you all good luck tomorrow. Remember to call me as I called you last week. I want to hear all the juicy details. I am actually coming home tomorrow. We decided not to go to our family reunion. We didn't want to drive to eastern Idaho. See you on Sunday.

This is it!

Our last week of training- crazy! It has been a wild ride, and I am excited to see how the race goes.

I found this website with tips. (Steph, I think this is the one you read!)

Tomorrow I am excited to do the practice triathlon, but I am going to take it really slow. (I hope that is okay with all of you. This is not the week to work too hard. :-)

Alright, ladies. See you tomorrow!

Molly, I am so glad you are feeling better about the swim. You are going to do awesome!


I wrote this on Sunday but never posted it. So, here you go! Thanks for the great night at the lake and the good workout this morning. This will be a new experience, that's for sure!

Congrats to Kirsten and Heather

I just want to say yahoo for our two olympic triathloners. Doesn't that sound cool like they were actually in the Olympics? You guys could be, seriously. I have a new found respect for triathletes.
I just wanted to write quickly that I had a great swim this morning. Thursday when Kelly and I swam it was my best swim up to that point and today was the best so far(that's now sayin' much though). But I finally feel a little more confident about the swim.
I'll be at the Y monday at 6:00 to meet kelly for a bike/run. Are you still swimming at 5:30 Kelly?

It's official

Hey Ladies,

I am officially registered for the triathlon and I took a big step and decided to register for the sprint and not the try-it. I hope this was the right decision!

My procrastination and indecision cost me $5! Doh!!

Molly, thanks for the great workout this morning. I am sure I talked too much. Just tell me to be quiet next time. It was great to run with new women!

Back in town

Hey Girls,

I can't believe this triathlon is next Saturday! I sure hope I am ready. I swam in a lake last Saturday and it was tough. I am excited though.

So, I was a little lacking in the bike training, so I am going to go for an hour bike ride in the morning. I will be at the Y at 6am and then I will be taking my bike in to get slicks. I hope some of you will join me.

Hope all is well for you!
