Triathlon from the other side

I participated as a member of a triathlon race committee for the first time (swim coordinator), and really enjoyed being on the "other side" of the race. The race was held this past weekend, and we had about 400 participants. It was a lot of fun, and I'll definitely be doing more of this in the future. I already knew that the race directors worked hard to put on a race, but I still was impressed with the amount of planning and effort that goes into making a triathlon happen. My hat is off to the race directors, staff members, and volunteers that all work so hard to provide a fun and safe race!

Training-wise, it was a pretty light week by design. I knew my weekend would be consumed with the race course set up and the race itself, and I was also due for a recovery week. I'm back into full training mode this week. One piece of exciting news is that my new bike (Cervelo P2) is due today, so I'm anxiously awaiting the UPS man! :)
