From the hotel computer, I just want to give a quick update on today's race. Representing state #33, NM was a backwards event that proved to be a hoot. I guess my body REALLY liked the reverse event (run, bike, swim) because I took 1st. But moreover, I felt invincible. My run was a PR and although there was a fair amount of congestion in the swim, I had so much energy, so much power, so much FUN. Altitude did not play a role and the weather was pristine. Thanks to my cousins Janette and Butch for flying in from San Diego to support me and thanks to my mom, well, for just being the best mom ever. Big shout out to the guys at BikeSmith for a solid rental and good support. More after I get home and can share photos.
