Anyway, here is the plan for the year:
Oceanside 70.3 - March 30
New Orleans 70.3 - April 21 (there will be a swim this year, there will be a swim this year, there will be a...)
St. George 70.3 - May 4
Raleigh 70.3 - June 2
Eagleman 70.3 - June 9
Yip yip! As you might be able to tell, I'm focusing on 70.3s this year. After this set of races, I'll decide what direction I want to go in as based on how the points are looking and how I'm progressing.
Did you notice the 70.3 double in June? You can't possibly know how excited I am about trying that. I'm pretty sure it might not seem nearly as fun when I'm melting slowly into a puddle of death on the EM run course BUT the good news is, when I emailed about registration into Eaglmean, I told the pro coordinator that I was requesting cooler weather for the race this year. So it will probably only be 95 instead of 10,000 degrees. You can thank me later for that one. ;)
Also, that is just my TRI racing schedule! Dirk wanted me to do a bunch of road races (running) this winter and trust me, he didn't have to tell me twice! I'm racing quite often actually AND get this - doing a 5K of all things for one of the races! I haven't run a 5K since March 29, 2008 (had to look it up in the training log) - almost FIVE years ago! That should be (painfully) fun. :) The first running race is actually this upcoming Sunday. It's a 5 miler that ends on an evil, evil hill that is about 3/4 of a mile long. I've done this race 3 other times and I have NEVER once broken 7:30 for that last mile. I kid you not. That's sad (but really, the hill is so freaking steep and long). That shall be my goal this weekend - crush 7:30 pace that last mile. HA!
