My cut-back long sucked on Saturday. Top worst runs ever. The pain in my middle and my muscle fatigue was almost too much to bear. I finished it, but it was not good.
Instead of dwelling on that negativity, I wanted to share something positive I did in the last week…..
Monday after mom and I worked out, we went downtown to volunteer at the Avia Austin Triathlon. I’ve volunteered twice for a tri, but it was on the front end. This was my first time ever attending one.
Town lake swim waves
Luckily most people cleared the swim before the wind went bonkers.
The bikes were wizzing by so fast! I was so scared of seeing crashes. Especially with dumb spectators randomly running across the roads!
We worked the run course with runner direction. I did Olympic course direction, mom did finish line direction for the Sprint and Olympic.
lol, it was hard to take photos, point, and yell at the same time. No good run-course photos. I lost my voice after high-winds and dust storm + yelling course turns for 3 hours. It was worth it though!
The event was alot of fun, but I think next time i’d like to do bike or swim course to learn more. Although I guess it does help to have knowledgable people on the course in the areas they know about. Running I can handle
And no, I still don’t want to do one myself, but I applaud all of the athletes on competing in a great sport!
