Friday morning we climbed Mt. Lemmon. The views were breathtaking. I thought the first few miles were the hardest. It was a 25 mile climb but the descent was worth it. I LOVE descending fast. We went for a short run when we got back and it was HOT! Lindsey and I ran together and managed to get it in before hitting the pool at the house.
Saturday was the hardest day....I have only been training for triathlon for a little over a year and never have I ridden my bike 80 miles...and it was a hot 80 miles. Jen might have
When we returned to Trisports Sarah, Bethany, Mia, Stacie and I went on a short, short run before heading in for lunch.
The POOL is my favorite and swimming outside makes it better. It was fun to swim with everyone in the sunshine! Kate designed some AWESOME suits for us!
Sunday we hit Sabino Canyon....I have never been trail running, so this was a first. It was about 6 miles up and then we ran down the paved road to finish. Lindsey and I ran together and took lots of pictures.

We did have a little visit from a rattlesnake which made our night interesting. Glen took some awesome pictures and we manged to convince him that it was probably not all that smart to play with a rattler.
After Sabino, Jen was so kind as to allow us to to TT repeats back up Mt. Lemmon. I was not sure if I would make them but in fact I felt okay! We did miles 1-5 twice before we called it a day.
Monday we did trail running again which was not as technical as Sabino but fun. I was glad to run back with Jen Maher and Mia. We hit the pool for the final time and then I caught a LONG flight back to PA. I spent more time on the runway in Dallas and Philly than in the air total. I rolled in at 3 am and mommy duties began at 7!
Thanks Jen and Jerome for a great weekend.
