Triathlon number 2 is in the books (here's the post about my first). 2014 just seems to be the year for races not really going as planned, but still working out. I was very excited about the Reston Sprint Triathlon as my second tri. I mean, I had been training in the pool, keeping up with some running, and felt really ready to attack it. Until I caught a cold. And by "caught a cold" I mean the worst cold I have had in YEARS!!!

After staying home from work the Friday before the race, I rallied late on Saturday night to test out swimming at Lake Newport Pool with Lauren, to make sure I could survive the next morning. I survived that swim and decided to show up on race day.

It's not that I did incredibly poorly in the race, or that I had a bad experience, but I am disappointed that I didn't feel well and wasn't able to completely ROCK it! Coming from such a spectacular time drop at the Nike Women's Half, I was really expecting more out of myself. Guess that means I need to train harder!

So let's just revel in the pretty photos that Lauren's mom took, shall we?
