You may have noticed my regularly scheduled blogging has taken a few weeks off, but I felt like blogging about anything else would be just beating around the bush until I eventually answered the question in the last post. After plenty of soul searching, and finally getting approval and promise of support from Sam, I’ve decided to make Rev3 Cedar Point my first full Ironman! After three halfs in the books, I’m finally making the jump.
Rev3 Cedar Point here I come! 140.6 miles of speed, pain and roller coasters!
Since I already had the Half Rev at Quassy locked on my calendar, I’m really temped to make the trip down to Knoxville in May to do the entire series. Wow, the 2010 planning is going full-steam ahead and it isn’t even December!
In other news, I’m slowly getting back to training and I’m sadly realizing how much fitness a person can lose in 6 weeks of being completely sedentary. I’m taking a tip from fellow Trakkers teammate, Elaine, and focusing on consistency, especially with running. The goal for the next few weeks is to run 6 days a week, even if it is just for two or three miles to slowly trick my legs into being athletic again.
If any of you kids are planning to join me next year at any of the Rev3 races, hold up until next week. I’ll be getting a discount code for you to use to save some extra scratch on registration.
