|Left to Right: Older-Younger|
The next year was fun and exciting having my little sister racing with me. She's a coach's dream. She puts her head down and gets the work done. Being that we don't live in the same state, I don't see her as often as I would like. We got to race together a couple times throughout the year. First, we went to Portland for the Rock 'n' Roll Half. Portland was not an easy course, but she PR'd by seven minutes.
San Diego International. It was her first international distance race and on a big stage to boot; she placed 10th in AG. So proud!
|We really wanted matching kits; this was the best we could do.|
In August, I headed over to SoCal and we raced the Santa Barbara Triathlon. This was her first 'longer' triathlon and she did awesome. We were both lucky enough to place 3rd in our respective AG's.
|Twins?! I kid.|
She came out to AZ to do the Women's Half Marathon a couple weeks before IMAZ. Unfortunately, I didn't get to race with her because my foot was already in the boot. She'd been nursing a bit of a knee injury, due to a bike fit, so we weren't sure how it would play out. The PR Queen came through again and knocked it out of the park.
|Thank you TYR and Nineteen for speedy swims. We LOVE our wetsuits.|
|Giant should be knocking at this girl's door. She's even been a model in their catalog and on their website.|
|She nearly broke my heart here; telling me she only wanted to finish and make me proud.|
|My sister is an Ironman!|
