Buffalo Sprint Race Report - After what seemed like an eternity, the triathlon season has finally begun! The busy off season sports and even busier school year seemed to take up all of my time and energy. It became difficult to find the time to even think about triathlons let alone finding the time to properly train for them. Although it was frustrating at times not being able to find the time to train the way I would have liked to, it was still a wonderful year with many accomplishments and happy memories.


The week before the Buffalo Triathlon I almost forgot that I would be competing. All of my time and focus had been on my track team as we were approaching sections that same weekend. As much as I wanted to work hard and focus on my first triathlon of the season, I knew that I had made a commitment to my team and my focus would have to be on our track meet. It all paid off because on Saturday I got to see my 4×800 team win our section race and qualify for the state championship. The celebrating was short lived as my family had to go home and get some sleep for the early morning ahead of us....

My legs felt like noodles when I tried to stand up and I was simply exhausted from spending the whole day on Saturday out in the heat. I took extra time to sleep in which did not allow me a lot of time to get checked in and set up transition. It all went by very quickly and before I knew it I was putting on my wet-suit and getting ready to do a warm up swim.  READ MORE
