Training for the triathlon at the 2015 National Senior Games in Saint Paul, MN

Jen has qualified for the triathlon event at the 2015 National Senior Games, to be held at Lake Phalen in Saint Paul, MN, in early July, 2015.

There are some pretty impressive and inspiring athletes at this event. http://www.today.com/health/i-just-love-it-meet-15-senior-athletes-who-will-1D79872078

Jen's qualifying triathlon was not pretty, but she finished, and that's all that matters for now.

Jen is SO excited because she grew up in a time when athletic programs for girls were virtually non-existent. (She didn't even start running until she was 46.) 

She isn't athletically gifted by any stretch of the imagination. 

She's not even very competitive. 

She's an introverted writer/creative type who shuns crowds and has not yet accepted the fact that she's been qualified for an AARP membership for well over a decade. 

So it's surprising that she's almost giddy about competing in games with over 12,000 athletes ages 50 and up from all over the country. http://www.nsga.com/2015-national-senior-games.aspx 

She's even revoking her introvert status for the Games and hoping to get to know some of the other participants. If you're competing in the games, tell Jen about it by commenting on this blog post or emailing Jen at jenluhrs@shopcolorcodemode.com. (Jen is from the Saint Paul area and has done the sprint triathlon at Lake Phalen three times before. She'll be happy to answer your questions about the course in general or about the area.)

Jen created the color-coded Streaming Colors Fitness Journal and will be giving hers an especially hard workout over the next six months.

There's nothing like not wanting to be last in an event to motivate you to train a little harder. (Not that there's anything wrong with being last. Jen's done it several times, with pride, because hey, it's a sprint triathlon, and at least she finished it. Most of all she did it because it was fun. That's right, we said fun.)

Hi, I'm Jen Luhrs and I hope you'll follow along as I blog about training and getting ready for the 2015 National Senior Games. I'd like to hear your stories, too!
