1/6/13: St Peter's Rec Plex Indoor Triathlon #5 (300 yards swimming, 10 miles biking, and 3 miles running) The run felt fantastic! I am not sure what I was doing differently but whatever it was, it worked! (300 yards swimming, 10 miles biking, and 3 miles running): 6:35 + 19:58 + 30:58 (and transition times) = TOTAL TIME: 1:01:22
I felt like this race felt good -- and I don't say that very often! The run was the best I have had in awhile -- I never stopped during the 5 miles and, in fact, kept increasing the speed as I went along. My final time still put me in the last spot for women in my age group but I am happy with it: TOTAL TIME: 1:58:10
2/10: St Peter's Rec Plex Indoor Triathlon #7 Long Course (500 yards swimming, 15 miles biking, and 5 miles running) This was the first time that I did the long course, which I did after doing the long course at the JCC the day before. So I can only hope that my times will get faster with this! :D TOTAL TIME: 1:40:30
2/17/13: St Peter's Rec Plex Indoor Triathlon #8 Long Course (300 yards swimming, 10 miles biking, and 3 miles running) The times haven't been posted yet but I know that I was somewhere around 1:38, about 2-3 minutes faster than the last week.

June 16, 2013: Spring Triathlon at the St Peter's Rec Plex (500 meter swim, 21 miles on bike, and 5 miles running) This race didn't quite go as expected for the folks behind the event -- lots of flooding so the race folks had to redo the bike course.
