In honor of how I will be spending my weekend I bring you a video about the Wildflower Triathlon. There is running at the end so I think it is fair game for this site. You can’t be a triathlete if you are not a runner.
This will be my first ever Olympic Distance Triathlon and although I’m nervous, I’m very excited. The jeff of the Amazing Hip (along with may others known to the Running Blog Family) will be there doing the Long Course event on Saturday while my event is on Sunday. We are both camping and will grooving on the athletic zeitgeist as we immerse ourselves in all things triathlon. Encouragement will be sought and given in large measure.
The beginning of this video could have been made much shorter—it is all about wetsuits and swimming. The run part pays tribute to the importance of making sure you stay hydrated and take in electrolytes. Watch it and you will see what I mean.
