Sunday Randomness

Today I gave a little nutrition lecture at the Pittsburgh Triathlon Club clinic.  It was fun.  It never ceases to amaze me how many people are interested in our sport in little Pittsburgh and how we are growing!  When I first started into triathlon, I only knew 2 or 3 other triathletes.  Now this place is crawling with tri geeks!  Watch out Boulder!  :)

Look how they are all pretending to be interested!  (Oscar took the picture through a class window, hence the glare)
Also, I got a new pair of goggles.  THE best goggles ever (and no, I'm not sponsored by them and yes, I bought these with cold, hard cash) - the TYR nest pro nano, goggles that actually fit my face.  By the way, every time I go to type goggles, I type google.  Am I the only one?

Also, I got an email from The Dirk today.  He says this upcoming week is a "transition week" - not as easy as a recovery week, but not very hard either.  And that I should take a "good deep breathe this week before we go HARD".  Totally thrilled and scared all at once!  (there might be weeping)  Here's to no mental meltdowns and many miles of fun!  Yahooooooooo!

Have a great week everyone!


  1. Do I get credit for starting the nickname "The Dirk" for your coach? Nice job today!

  2. I recall reading an article about all Pittsburgh and all of these fast triathletes from there, word is already out Beth.

  3. Those are the #1 selling goggle on our team. TYR rocks!

  4. I always wear the Vanquisher from Speedo - i think that's what JH wears too. They're cheap & they work for me & I don't take good care of them so the cheap factor is key. :)

    Woohoo for mental meltdowns!! They're always funny, after the fact.
