Full Steam Ahead!

I did my first “big” bike race, Hillsboro Roubaix, a few weeks ago.  It was a blast!  I raced in the cat 4 division and there were 50 girls at the start.  I stayed up front, out of danger, and finished 10th.  I somehow lost a wheel with a 1/2 mile to go and finished by myself…somewhere between 9th place and 11th.  It was a great learning experience and I can’t wait for the next bike race! 
I followed Hillsboro up with the Carmel Sprint Triathlon last weekend.  I needed to do a little swim, bike run and I was a bittersweet with my finish.  I had a decent swim for not swimming all winter.  My bike was a bit slow, but I followed it up with a great run.
I finally put together a tenative race schedule for 2010 and I look forward to seeing how many of these races I do! Since I will be mainly doing bike racing, I will be racing almost every weekend!  I figured I would throw some sprint triathlons in there, just to remain true to myself.
