First and foremost I want to thank TriSports.com for allowing me once again to represent their company as a “TriSports.com Champion”. I know what you are thinking and you are saying to yourself “Brooks is sponsored by TriSports? He sucks! I can race circles around him!” You are probably right and that is why TriSports.com sponsors me as an ambassador of the sport and not a competitive athlete. One day I hope to make their competitive team, but it will take several years of hard work and big finishes at big races. If you haven’t checked out all that TriSports.com has to offer, make sure you head over to their website www.trisports.com and see what they have. If you find something just use my discount code at the top of this blog and receive 10% off, also remember if you are a member of the El Paso Tri Club you get 15% your orders.
Over the winter I managed to put in a good number of run miles and worked out on the bike trainer pretty well. My swimming has been non-existent, but that has changed over the past couple weeks, so I hope to get my fitness up in a couple months. This race season will be light until the end of July. I plan on doing a few local sprints and then tackle Buffalo Springs 70.3 once again. I have redemption on my mind and will bust my tail to see it happen. After Buffalo Springs 70.3, the rest of the season is up in the air. I would like to do SOMA and possibly REDMAN, but need to see what kind of time constraints I will have as far as work and family.
Let me know what you have planned. I would love to see comments regarding races in Arizona, New Mexico, and other western states, but I’m open to travel anywhere for a quality race.
Remember to help the sport grow in El Paso, it is important to have a strong club. If you have not signed up to be a member of the El Paso Tri Club, go to this link https://www.signmeup.com/site/online-event-registration/83017 and make it happen! It only cost $40 a year and the discounts it provides easily cover the cost.
One last thing, I would like to congratulate Gretchen McElroy for being selected to represent our area on the Rocky Mountain Region USAT board of directors. Her experience and work ethic will be a great benefit to all.
