TTT Randommess

So before we get into the last race, I wanted to share some of the other tidbits from the weekend.....

First off, have I mentioned how hilly it was?  The Shawnee State Park and Forest was the host for American Triple T Ohio and is located in the Appalachian foothills near the banks of the Ohio River! 

The literature stated that American Triple T Ohio "will provide you one of the most challenging weekends of your life-count on it."  YEAH, BRING IT!  

One interesting thing about this race was that we camped out for the weekend.  Even better we got to camp next door to our Cleveland area peeps all weekend!  Super fun!

There is also an amazing sense of camaraderie over the course of the weekend among participants as we all donned the same shirt.  The same shirt we would wear in all four races (Ewww, and I showered with that shirt on too!)

Recovering in the icy cold water was key, as well as keeping up on your fueling!
It is really hard to walk on little rocks when your legs are tired!

Always remember, this is what we do fun fun!

Always run with a smile!
Always look for me to try to sprint you to the finish!
Hallelujah, the finish line!
"All this racing stuff is tiring!"

The 4 races in 3 days doesnt scare me that much, its the hills that scare me, me and hills do not get along at all.
