I really need to stop waiting 3-4 weeks in between each blog post.
Let's see, in the last few weeks, I raced twice. YES! I didn't get to race much at the beginning of the season so I'm making up for lost time now!
First, I did a local sprint triathlon. I haven't raced that short or that close to home in 3 or 4 years. It was awesome. Also, I out split my coach on the bike. Goal accomplished.
|1:13 isn't a very long time to race but oh man was there a lot of pain packed into that 1:13.|
|It was a good, fun day with my teammates and friends.|
|And then we rode our bikes for 3 hours after the race because Ironman is stupid.|
|But then we got to the post-race BBQ and all was right in the world again.|
The same week/weekend of the sprint race, Kim, my sister from another mother, was visiting me. Kim and I have been friends for the majority of my life and so it was great to have her in town and be able to hang out like old times. She has seen me through thick and thin and been there for me every step of the way. Super cheesy and cliche, but good, true friends really are like gold.
|And of course we ate ice cream. Duh.|
|If these two ever get sick of their third wheel, I'm in serious trouble.|
|And if you ever get the chance to go to Timberman, do it. Because this is where you get to race.|
|Post race we went to an OAR concert in Portsmouth, NH. I had so much caffeine in my system from racing, I never skipped a beat.|
|Riding bikes in the summer. Not a bad gig.|
|Also, you should know that I've become a bit obsessed with goats. Because look how cute this is.|
|So when we were in Hartford, CT yesterday to speak at a QT2 continuing ed seminar, and I saw that they have a baseball team called the Yard Goats? Well, let's just say I know who I'm rooting for from now on...|
|And yes, every blog post should end with a watermelon picture. #fact|
