a few weeks ago when my upcoming work schedule came out, i found out that i was free the weekend of sept 14-15th. i contemplated joining a reach the beach team but ultimately decided that i really didnt want to run far/not sleep much this close to marathon #7. also its about 30 degrees at night now so sleeping in my bed vs a sleeping bag on the sidewalk sounded much better. and then theres that whole "we got a puppy" thing. hes kinda a lot of work.
im still annoyed by these triathlon rules...
but i like my number a lot better than his ;)
i think we can see who knows more about transitions
what, this isnt what you do?
and at least they remembered the "L" in triathlon...
oops. (polar bear tri shirt)i was able to see a bunch of people i knew coming out of the water as the rain poured down, and then quickly turned sunny and warm.
this is what marathoners do at triathlon relays
i headed out on the dirt park road at about a 7:15 pace. oops. i knew i probably wasnt going to PR this 10k since i havent done legit speedwork since i dunno, may? but i figured i was in good enough shape to do low 8s. and i knew i had a hill to come up at mile 4ish. what i had forgotten about was the hill at mile 1. mile 2. oh and mile 3. barf.
team "less is more ;)"
