Ramblin' Rose Tri 2

We have been in Winston-Salem for a bit more than a year now and Amy decided to race the Ramblin'Rose Triathlon again. When she did it last year we had barely been here, and this time Amy actually had planned it a bit longer in prep for a Half Ironman in September. The goal was to be faster than last year and hopefully go sub 1 hour. Amy had an awesome race and finished in 59:07 and 51st out of almost 500 starters. (last year she finished in 1:04:22) Below are a few pics from the race.

Amy sets up her little transition area quite focused

The pre race meeting was busy and enthusiastic

The pool looks quite serene

This race has a long run from the pool to the bike transition

A quick transition allowed Amy to get out fast

Almost home, sub 1 hour and more than 5 minutes faster than last year

The results area was quite popular
