me and Paul #1 male finisher (and fellow injury recoveree!)
my first medal (in my life- for real!)
me and jen...visor buddies
after the race, we headed to James and Jen's Coronado pad for a soak in the jac....aaaaaaaaaahhhhhh
and later to a Tri Club BBQ at Don's in Carlsbad. We celebrated James' b-day and had some fine wines served by Thomas, the club sommelier
James D (Birthday Boy) and Rachel looking hot
So race day was a blast...my first triathlon was so fun and my leg was none the worse...and the day got EVEN better with a couple glasses of vino...
and its a good thing too because i went out on a bike ride the following day (sunday), had a bad crash, and ended up in the ER with a broken arm (fractured radial neck between elbow and wrist). sweet. 2 broken bones in 6 months. so i'm back on the injury bus...nice...needless to say, i am super bummed, but also i know i should be thankful the crash was nothing worse...mykl (who i rode with) really handled the whole thing expertly and he made sure i was taken care of and got his dad to take us to the hospital.
so my training log will be a little light (NO swimming, biking, running) for weeks, but I'll be able to do a little stationary spinning..any tips to keep my sanity are welcome! (or DVD recommendations for the trainer)
james came to the ER (huge, on charger's sunday no less) and took me home. mostly, i'm glad james helped me to keep it in perspective and remember that it's not the end of my triathlon career (which has thus far lasted one day) and i'm actually super lucky. here's a photo he took on the way home from the ER...hmmm. i look a little mellow...could those be vicodin eyes?
Here are some fun pictures from the weekend. Click the photo to see the album
