Preparing For the Athleta Iron Girl New Orleans Triathlon!

It's not too late to commit to a great sprint distance triathlon, coming up on May 22, 2011 in New Orleans! This all female event consists of a 1/4 mile swim in Lake Ponchartrain near the UNO Research Center, a 12 mile out and back bike along Elysian Fields, and a 3.1 mile run along Lakeshore Drive. 

FitBird Fitness shares a similar mission with the creators of the Athleta Iron Girl events which, among other things, is to empower women toward a healthy lifestyle!

For many of you who are about to complete their first Rocketchix race, this is a great race to follow up with! Both races are sprint distance and the Athleta Iron Girl New Orleans Triathlon progresses you into racing the swim course in open water. The temperature of Lake Ponchartrain right now is comfortably in the 70's and the swim area is along the beach near dry land.

We will be offering some opportunities for open water swim training between now and the race so there is plenty of time to get comfortable in the water. Grab some friends and head to New Orleans for an opportunity to race either solo or on a relay with other women in a supportive and fun setting!
