New Day, New Race

Well, I have a press release...
I have successfully eatten a gel without getting sick. wOOt wOOt! I used Enervit Orange, it tasted disgusting, I could hardly swallow it due to the texture, and I had to wash it down with fluid but I got it down and kept it where it belongs. I am such a dork that I set up my trainer in my backyard on Sunday (a warm but beautiful day) and rode on it for 45 min or so just so I would be close to home if things backfired (literally... sorry that was gross I know).

So, for my race on Sunday, the HyVee Triathlon in Des Moines, IA I will be using one Enervit gel when I get on my bike, one 15 minutes before the run and will be drinking water in my CamelBak and Enervit mix in my bottle. Hopefully this will allow me to run a bit faster than last week, I mean really, I couldn't go much slower.
