*be careful it is addictive!

I participated in Iron Girl - Las Vegas last year for the first time and absolutely loved it so I'm doing it again this year!  I can't wait.  It is so much fun.  One of the funnest things about it is that, as the name implies, it is just for the GIRLS!  Iron Girl 2010 was my first open water tri and I panicked a bit at first but got into a rhythm and finished the swimming leg just fine.  This year I should do a lot better with the swim because I have been training a lot more in the pool.  This is a sprint tri which includes an 800 meter swim, a 30K bike ride, and a 5K run.
Iron Girl - Las Vegas is so beautiful.
It takes place at the Loew's resort at Lake Las Vegas.
