Just a rookie. Started training June'11 and first Tri Sept '11.

Any time on the bike is great. Did my first track workout recently and actually enjoyed it... surprising given that running is NOT my strength.

Do you have training partners?
Victoria and Amanda keep me going.

Best Race?
Enjoyed them all. Two big ones coming up. stay tuned.

Probably Longhorn '11. Flat tire and slow run killed my time; however, there's always next year.
