About Me

My photo
Austin, Texas, United States
I'll make you laugh, or break my neck trying. This is usually accomplished with daily bouts of swimming, biking and running. A former "chub-a-holic," I got fit and healthy the good old fashioned way and went from a mid-pack athlete to top age group runner and triathlete. I'm a Writer and USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach. I guess that makes me part Tina Fey and part Jillian Michaels. Visit my coaching site at www.fomotraining.com

Wellington at Mile 1 of the marathon...piece of cake

Austin Pro Desiree Ficker in the early portions of the bike

Badmann always with a smile
...so close and yet so far away...

Sindballe was first off the bike. That lead didn't last long.

Stadler and Lieto were on his heels...both would eventually fade.
James Bonney with a great stride at Mile 1

How does Faris Al-Sultan not chafe??

com'on...admit it...you think Sindballe's totally hot with his oh-so-white compression socks and matching white arm coolers...oh, and matching white shorts...oh, and matching white top...

Viv said...

Great shots Carrie! Thanks so much for posting them...You did not pack any lava rock did ya ;-)

The Lindsor said...

Dude, Al-Sultan's mankini is hotttt. Hook a sista up.

PS - apparently the folks in Kona didn't get the memo that you can't leave the house with compression socks on. Not okay.

Fun pictures! And hey, some of those triathletes know how to dress... I guess its all in getting the right sponsor for your hair color and skin tone!
