1. Life Time Indoor Tri Championships
Over the weekend I competed in the inaugural Life Time Indoor Tri Championships in Schaumburg, IL. The event was combined with Life Time’s Cyclepalooza, so there was a lot going on the entire morning. Although my performance was not stellar, overall I did well. Full recap coming soon.
2. Roka Wetsuit!
Now that is a proud owner of a Roka wetsuit! As someone who has never tried on a wetsuit in their life, this suit felt great. It fits like a glove! I seriously felt lighter in it, like I could float when I jumped. I am excited to test it out in the water, especially open water, to see the difference it has.
3. Half- Marathon on my Mind
I am less than two weeks out from racing in my first half-marathon and nerves are definitely setting in. I am starting to have a ready or not here I come type of attitude.
4. New Book: Serena by Ron Rash
I recently finished The Catcher in the Rye, which was interesting, but not a favorite. Either you related to the main character or you didn’t, what I mainly took away is that he really liked saying “goddam” and “phony.”
I then started a new book , Serena. I am only through chapter three, but I am already intrigued. Doesn’t hurt to know that Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence will be playing the leads in the upcoming film version!
5. Chicago Marathon
Well this happened today! I got in to the Chicago Marathon!!! First marathon here I come! I cannot believe that I would ever attempt to run a marathon in my life, but I am, and I am excited about it. What is going on with me??
My main focus is still on Ironman Racine 70.3 and USAT Nationals though!
