Welcome to From 300 to Iron

I would like to welcome each and everyone to my new blog.

I have just started my training and wanted to keep an account of where I have been and where I am going on the roller coaster ride call Triathlon.

On April 26, 2015 I completed in my first Super Sprint Tri in Edwardsville, IL at SIUE. I was very proud of myself and the results that I got.

Age group 45*49 This was a super sprint: Swim 150 yards, Bike 10 miles and Run 2 miles

10th in age group and 126th overall
Swim: 6:57.45 86:53/M
T1:4:25.80
Bike: 1:16:07.00
Run: 41:37.30 20:49/M
Total time: 2:09:07.55

I am very impressed with myself especially with the Bike. I dropped my chain twice and had to walk up 2 hills. Of course I had the most fun coming down the hills. I kept wanting to squeal WEEEEEE! Just needed to have streamers to my handlebars. Happy with the run, which I walked also.

I can’t wait to do it again.

  1. Way to go girl! You just might be my inspiration to get down to a reasonable goal weight. Sitting at 265 right now. That’s a 30 lb gain in 20 years of marriage. Yuck. I now have 2 young kids (7 & 3). All the years before having them I always put so many others and my career path ahead of my own needs. Not any longer! Miss you.
