This is probably a race I would not have ever signed up for if it hadn’t been for TRIBE doing the bike support… Mexico is a place that I usually don’t want to go to…
BUT THIS PLACE ROCKS.
It is beautiful… and the race was AWESOME!
It is a Saturday race so we left Friday morning and got down just in time to eat and set up the bike “tune up” shop for all the participants.

Tim our TRIBE mechanic started in the beautiful day light…

And ended in the dark… he may have been having a good time.

Don’t worry folks… I didn’t touch anyone’s bikes!

 THE RACE.
SO. I have something to tell you…
I haven’t been running.
I am on the “no running cause it hurts list”
Don’t worry… I am getting it fixed.
I shall run again! =D
SO for this race thankfully I had a friend help me out with the run!
BUT anyways…  back to
THE RACE.
Wait. I have something else to share!
Thursday night I picked up this beauty at TRIBE MULTISPORT
Meet Rosalita

Don’t worry, before I packed her up to go to Mexico I rode her Friday morning…

BUT FOR REAL THIS TIME…  back to
THE RACE.
I set up in transition… with #mynewbike #Rosalita
I had to give her a Spanish name since her first time really being ridden was in Mexico!

Waiting for the start… Trying to get Katie to rub off on me 🙂
She is a super awesome person and athlete!
She won the race! Congrats to you!!
And thankfully kept she didn’t tell me about the sting rays she saw in the water the day before! =D

THE SWIM
 1000 meters – Official time 23:41 (6th place ag)
Garmin time 19:52 — OKAY. SO… we had to run to the water.
NOT fun when you are hurt. My hip has been bad so I knew I was at a huge disadvantage but this race had already turned into kill swim/bike don’t worry about the run.
I didn’t start my Garmin until I was in the water and stopped it coming out so I could know my real time. AND I am proud!
1:59/100m pace in the OCEAN! YAY!!

Also… I have to mention my transition FASTEST one in my AG by over 30 seconds!
Swim to bike 1:11!
THE BIKE
26 miles – Official time 1:20.19 (4th place ag)
Average speed: 19.4 mph
I love Rosalita.
She is not only beautiful but she helps me be speedy!
I don’t believe I have EVER averaged 19.4 mph.
TT BIKES RULE!
My legs felt great and I could have “ran” after if I was able.
The wind out there started really picking up after the first lap but it was only SUPER bad in a couple spots so you got a few breaks from the wind!
On my final lap there was a bit of a traffic jam, literal traffic, that caused me to have to unclip and navigate around a bunch of traffic that had entered the round-a-about on the course… but thankfully it was just one lap and a SMALL section!

  1. Great race report! I almost makes me want to go down there and do this race. I’m like you with the whole Mexico thing, if the whole country wants to get out, why do I want to get in? Anyway.
    Nice work on the swim and bike!! You killed it!!
    Major bum deal on your injury. Hope it heals quickly so the podium queen can return to her throne 🙂
    I get the smile on my lower back every race I do, no mater how much sunscreen. Triathletes are a sexy bunch. heehee
