Great pics- you do look relaxed. Read your Pendleton report- great race! Did the run in 57 minutes with that heat- you're good!! I've got a sprint then an olympic coming up both in August.

Thanks everyone! You guys are the greatest. It's nice having a "virtual" group of buddies to help motivate me.

You look famous! Seriously! You always have a look on your face of determination, never exhausted, like one might expect after all you go through in a race!

Nice Job!!! Nice pics too. That look of seriousness does make you look strong.

I am impressed at how you break down your races in so much detail. Must be that all that scientific research.

Hey Rachel, my name is Emily and I'm up in northern CA. I have only my second olympic triathlon coming up this Sunday and am contemplating going no wetsuit. How have your swim experiences been w/out the added buoyancy of a wetsuit?
Thanks for any insight! EK
