Texas 70.3 Race report! /weekend recap: Galveston was a major milestone in our lives lately. It has been around 600 days since we have gotten to do what we love to do: Race.

We left Wednesday afternoon to make sure that we got there in time for the chaos that seems to follow us around to settle before the race. Good thing we did. Our flight went to MSP then Houston. During our stop in MSP I looked up rental cars just in case this shuttle didnt work out but I couldn't find any. Every site said sold out. We both looked at 7 different sites all saying sold out. The plane was leaving so we agreed to look once we got to Houston.

Upon arrival we went to the rental car parking garage that was 100% empty. We asked and they were indeed 100% sold out of cars. We asked if there was an event, they said no this happens every day... poor planning on their part but whatever. So we requested an uber for the hour car ride and got super lucky! It was a pickup!! 2 bikes and full luggage it was the only way we would make it. During the drive I ordered Pizza to be waiting for us at the air bnb. About 5 minutes later I realized that I messed up the address. I called back 5 times but no one answered. Hopefully they would call back and deliver it down the street?   ...

It's time to get serious. Racing plans need to be made, at least tentatively. Outdoor training is happening and vaccinations for all are on the horizon. So, start thinking about knocking off some on rust season opener weekend, where you have the choice to either race on May 22 (Saturday) at the APPLE, our state's oldest multisport event, or on the 23rd (Sunday) at the OAKDALE SPRING CLASSIC DUATHLON at Lake Elmo Park Reserve.

Or both?

The May duathlons are awesome prep for tri season, which get underway two weeks down the road. But in between on June 2 is the Hopkins OPEN H20 CHALLENGE, which is produced by the smae folks that bring you the HOPKINS ROYAL TRIATHLON, a multiple Race of the Year Winner....

As part of your intro to the sport, consider why you’re taking up triathlon to begin with and what you hope to gain from the beginner triathlon training experience. Are you motivated purely by the desire to have fun and expand your social circle? Are you looking for a fitness kick in the pants to battle the bulge of middle age?

Whatever your reasons at the start, formulating your goals and priorities will help you plan a race season best suited to your desires and strengths....
