What I don’t know about dressage and triathlon training

I’m sitting here chuckling to myself because three years ago I would have laughed out loud if anyone had suggested racing anything. Well, maybe not if the race entailed eating malt balls. Starting with a small race and building up to a half ironman in July. April 18 – Baby Ice Breaker Triathlon in Granite BayThis is a super sprint to kick off the season – I picked it because my good friend Vikki lives nearby and I’m hoping she’ll join me and get hooked on triathlon too!200 yd swim – 6.5 mile bike – 2 mile run. May 16 – Morgan Hill Sprint TriathlonI think this race attracts super fast folks but it’s sort of local for me and I like the idea of swimming in the UVAS Reservoir which is only opens for this one event. June 5 – See Jane Run Half Marathon in AlamedaSince I’ll be tackling a half marathon in my half IM I thought it would be smart to give one a go in a race setting. June 27 – Golden Gate Triathlon – San FranciscoI’ve been wanting to do a race in SF but I’m not a huge fan of giant races with thousands of people. July 31 – Barb’s Race in Santa RosaThis is the big one for me! 70.3 miles of racing fun. Barb’s race is the women’s only version of the Vineman 70.3 race. Barb’s Race is being held in honor of Barbara Recchia, a long-time Vineman volunteer and race committee member who has twice been faced with the daunting task of fighting cancer.
