Lake Guntersville Triathlon

So, G and I signed up for Lake Guntersville Triathlon (Olympic Distance) and completed it this past weekend.  You cannot beat the “early bird” pricing – $25!!!  We have done this race for the past 3 years and love it.  The bike course is very rolling and the run is very rolling as well.  The run is also part road and part trail – so there is your fair warning.

I love Lake Guntersville State Park and the Lodge!  We usually drive up after work and spend the night.  The rooms are nice, fantastic pool, workout room, and great restaurants on site.

This race is pretty low key – low stress.  It starts at 8am, central time and you can pretty much stay in transition until your wave is called.  It is an in water start and each wave goes off every three minutes.  I think there was a total of 4 waves this year. (Total people for both the sprint and Olympic @300).

I beat my time from last year by a minute, so I totally consider that a win.  G however beat me for the 1st time in this race by 2 minutes.  Guess I need to start training a little harder, not that we are competitive with each other at all 😉

Coming back in from the bike.

I wore my new kit from #BestTriClubEver and it worked perfectly!  No hot spots and it did not ride up anywhere.  Looking forward to next years race already!

Next up….. Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon (which if you want a discount code for this race, let me know)
