1) Although I didn't win, I was surprised and excited to find that USATriathlon had given me Honorable Mention for female amateur triathlete of the year in 2011. USA Triathlon has over 140,000 members, so it was an honor to even be mentioned...hmmm...maybe that's why its called an honorable mention. Regardless, it was one of those things I found out about on twitter. Yet another reason I love twitter... The full article is here.
2) Another pony has posted up in our stable...Any guesses?
3) A different kind of interview with Intelligent Triathlon Training- a british website with great interviews on several olympians and coaches- I loved the recent interviews with Gwen Jorgensen & Jarrod Shoemaker. Although I'm not yet frying any Olympic sized fish, they were kind enough to ask me some interesting questions about psychology and triathlon. My full interview is here.
Any how. I hope the surprises are not over because I'd LOVE to surprise myself at the season opening bust-out-the-cobwebs (And the wetsuit- speaking of, hope I can find that thing....) Desert International Triathlon in Palm Desert, CA. James is away
Just gotta get through a busy Friday at work, pack and then we're off!
