Prepping For Pacific Crest

I was supposed to race my first triathlon this weekend, but unfortunately they moved the date of the race to September, same day as IMLT. So now my focus is on my next race that is a half ironman. I have just over three weeks before the race, two weeks (three if you include this week) to focus on getting some solid training in before a mini taper. I didn't get much training in while I was in Mexico so I really need to get to work!


I am so looking forward to Pac Crest I raced it back in 2011 and LOVED it, probably my favorite race I have ever done. DSCN4089.JPG

It's a big endurance festival that includes the long course triathlon, olympic triathlon, marathon, half marathon, 10k, 5k and some really cute kiddie events. The events are held in Sun River, a really cute resort community in central Oregon. The bike course goes around Mt. Bachelor and the views are breathtaking!


Temperatures for this race can be all over the board, we lucked out in 2011 with warmish temps although the swim is notoriously cold. Last year it was freezing! So fingers crossed for warm water and coolish air.

What is your favorite race and why?

  1. Have fun at PC! It was my first half IM back in 2009 and I LOVED it. A bunch of my friends thought the run was a torture chamber but I didn't even notice that it was hot for some reason! I really want to get back there and do it again some day.
