RAC­ING OVER THE POND

220 Triathlon Magazine - - YOUR EMAILS & PICTURES -

After hav­ing bought your ex­cel­lent magazine nearly ev­ery month for the last year, I FI­NALLY screwed up the courage to­day and sig1ned up for my first sprint du, com­ing up in late Septem­ber – and im­me­di­ately pan­icked! The thought of run­ning and bik­ing and tran­si­tions is ex­cit­ing and ter­ri­fy­ing all at the same time. But, with the help of 220, I’ve al­ready been prac­tic­s­ing my tran­si­tions, bike mounts and dis­mounts, aero tuck, etc. So I know you’ll have my back!

Oh and my first du ex­pe­ri­ence will be at Mis­sion Bay Park in San Diego, Cal­i­for­nia, the orig­i­nal birth­place of triathlon. Cheers, and keep the great mag com­ing! Paula Beebe, Lake­side, CA USA
