The race is July 9. (It's the Heart of the Rockies Tri). It's an Olympic with an accurate 1500/40/10 course. Mass start lake swim, average Bike, hilly run.
In 2015 we both did the chinook Olympic (that had a 46km bike) and Brent beat me by 29 minutes. However, in the race I ran 5:20 kms and this last August I ran 5:13/km for 30km in Penticton and also had 20:15 for 4.8km in the aquathon. In other words, I've improved.
More relevant info:
1. I've been doing push-ups. 2. My treadmill is broken. 3. This is my 4th straight year doing this race. 4. Brent is a lawyer. 5. I am a kitten/puppy rescuer. 6. Admittedly my biking a weak point but I have been following a loose fitnessblender.com routine for 2 months. 7. This isn't my A race, it's my AAA race.
I have to say that I absolutely love that cover image, though it is a little inaccurate because it makes it look like triathlon fans have triathlon fan friends. Realistically 95% of us will watch alone.
