Cajun Cup 10K

I decided to do this 10K a week before the race. There aren't many 10K races in my area and I've been wanting to improve on my 10K time.

While I did have a personal best I wanted a sub 60 minutes time. I think I would have been successful had I placed myself with other runners with a similar pace. I spent the 1st mile weaving around slower runners and walkers.

Still had a good time!

Cane Field Classic 2014

I'm usually not a fan of adventure type races but Cane Field Classic interested me. Sugar cane grows everywhere I live. I even  live directly in front of a sugar cane field. I decided to sign up at the last minute and I'm glad I did. It was the most fun I've ever had!

There was a 1 mile run, a 4 mile through dirt paths in the cane fields and a 2 mile run directly between the rows of uncut, mature sugar cane.  Doing all 3 runs got you a real machete with the race name engraved in the blade! This was a great change from all of the strict training of the summer. I will definitely do all 3 next year!!

Last Triathlon of the Season

And managed to get 1st place AG and 3rd place overall female!  Still very disappointed in my canceled Olympic triathlon but this was a good way to end the season.

This race has a special place in my heart because it's where I met some close friends and my SO.

Plans for next year are to do that Olympic Triathlon and possibly Iron Man 70.3 New Orleans!

Big Cajun Cancelled!

My birthday race and my 1st Olympic triathlon was canceled due to fog. The fog was so thick driving there and it was just as thick on the water.  Unfortunately it didn't burn off in time and my race was turned into a duathlon.

So disappointed I trained all summer long for this race.  Soooo I'm doing another sprint and hanging up the towel for the season.

Last race of the season......Big Cajun Olympic

Finally, my last race I've been training for, Big Cajun!!

I've been training for this race all summer, I am looking forward to doing my 1st Olympic distance race. I'm hoping the weather cooperates and that everything goes smoothly. If I do ok in this race, I'm considering IronMan New Orleans 70.3. We'll see!!

Sugarman Triathlon

Wow. One year later and I completed this sprint.  And had a great time!  Last year I DEF this race so I was determined to do it again and do it well. 5th of 13 in my age group and I'm happy!
