OK, I do not have much of a race report for this. I biked 18 miles and had a blast and would absolutely do it again. I do not have a lot of pictures from the race, but as you may remember, the bike portion is a little hilly.
|Except for that one downhill|
The Tuckerman Inferno is a pentathalon - run, kayak, bike, hike, ski. It can be done as an individual (Tuckerman/Tuckerwoman), in teams of 5 or in teams of 2. We had a team of 5. It is a low key and super fun race, if you are thinking about doing it, you should definitely sign up. I would really like to try to do this race as part of a 2 person team sometime. Preferably someone who can ski the Tuckerman area better than me.
|Just finished the ride...brr...where is my puffy coat?|
I got into my truck and changed, found my puffy coat, then met up with the rest of the team to wait and cheer for Callie, our pro skier, to come down.

Our team was a bunch of rockstars, running, kayaking, biking, hiking, and skiing around Mount Washington. I am not even really sure where we placed - we were not first, we were not last - but we all agreed we were all in it for fun and as long as we finished the course, it didn't matter.
I got a new toy...
My parents got me a Garmin 310XT for my birthday. Holy crap, what a present!
I am already an addict. This thing rocks. Between that and the Garmin Connect online software, I am a complete junky. Thanks Mom and Dad!
New Wetsuit Makes Caratunk Girl into Wonder Woman!
I feel so fortunate to have such amazing sponsors as a member of Team Trakkers. TYR is an amazing sponsor, I have been a fan of their products for a long time. This year they let all team members pick out a wetsuit for the season. PINCH ME! I got my Hurricane Category 5 wetsuit this week!
I am super stoked to start swimming in it, I need all of the help I can get that is for sure and putting on this suit makes me feel like aqua woman!
|Yes, I am wearing socks. It snowed yesterday.|
Thank you TYR, I am so grateful, I know this will be well used this season!
Now if the ice would just go out...
