After running my first marathon in January, I vowed that my goal in 2013 was to do my first triathlon. After moving to North Carolina, I searched for different triathlons that were very simple yet would challenge me to train for it. Any race with a swimming event over 400 meters scared me. Yes, I've swam in the ocean quite a lot but not in a race style. After swimming laps in the local pool it was clear to me I needed something much, much smaller. This is when I found the Ramblin' Rose Race series. I LOVE that it really focuses on celebrating active and fit women. It's hard to believe that a women had to sneak on to the Boston Marathon, just shy of 50 years ago, to actually prove that women could be capable to run just like men. Now, there are races gauged specifically for women!
I'm not sure which race in the area I'm going to run, but I know it will happen this summer.
Here is a listing of the races
