First TRI out of the way!Andre Barbieri
Hey there, here I am already training for the 11th Annual PossAbilities Triathlon , coming up on April 28th!
Kendra’s Race went well, I finished in 2 hours. Swimming and cycling went smooth and running was a struggle, it killed my timing! Trail running with steep hills, ouch! Beautiful scenery, but tough for me. I’ll have to keep training…
It’s pretty cool training for an event, you train with a purpose. You set mini goals that you have to achieve each day. I wish I only had to train and compete, without having to work! But gotta pay my bills:)
My good friend, mentor and sponsor Isaac Osborne at Motion Unlimited told me something really good, about how important it is to participate on these events with “able-body-people”, because they humble you down. No matter how hard I train, and how good I’m feeling on race day, there will be some professional athletes (with TWO strong legs) that will “smoke” me in the course!
So this is my advice (for myself), keep training and keep humble.
See you guys on the 28th at Loma Linda = 3,1 miles run, 11 miles bike and 150 yards swim!
