YEAH!!! I got it!!

How to Become an Asian Triathlon Superstar, Step #21: Qualify for your pro card!

I had my best half ironman race of my life today at the Florida/Disney 70.3! I went 4:51, which is an overall PR by 7 minutes, took 10mins off my bike split and broke 2:30 for the first time, and took another couple minutes off my run. I won my age group for the first time ever at an M-dot event and best of all, was the 3rd female amateur overall and so now I can officially be a pro triathlete according to the USA Triathlon standards!

I finally got called up on stage for the first time this season (wasn’t fast enough to go up for the pro races in Asia and the Wildflower one never happened). So I went up decked in some team gear, my new favorite shorts, the red/pink hair and a BIG SMILE. :D

The race announcer asked if I wanted my Clearwater spot, and I told everyone “No, I’m getting my pro card!!” :) He then said he loved my hair. :) see Mom, everyone likes it!

I got these awesome shorts at one of the outlets here. yeah, outlet shopping was part of the pre-race prep:

China may not want me as a pro triathlete, but that’s ok, now the USA has to take me. I think I am now the first and only Chinese-American pro triathlete! So everyone should want to sponsor me. I am so easily recognizable and I can help attract minorities to this white man’s sport. ;)

Here are my great friends who also competed today. Sarah was one of my favorite training partners when I was at grad school in Atlanta, and Mark is the best travel sponsor in the world who lives in Austin by way of the UK. I am going to have to do a Cribs-style video blog of the hotel room he got for me…it rocks!!
