|always rocking the R|
let's just say that between training, working, sleeping and family life trying to find time to blog about it all has been a challenge. When you are juggling that many balls, sometimes a few fall (like blogging and housework).
|Rev3 shimmer & Team Tats! Today's double swim|
I so miss sharing my crazy adventures with y'all so I am opting to journal the last 6 weeks until my first 140.6 even if it is only in bullet points and a few pics!
Following my friends racing at IMLP yesterday certainly got me pumped up and feeling excited to toe the line myself! Such a pleasure following those who crossed the finish line...and feeling heart break and worry for a few who did not make it.
The crazy dreams have started already!
Coach said this is totally normal...lol
We have two kinds of weather this summer;
Cold and Raining
95* of blistering heat and oppressive humidity.
|wet n dirty after a long ride in the rain|
|downpour, survived 60 miles in this and then finished up on the trainer|
My pace has no middle ground either.
HOT = SLOW
COLD = FAST
|blister hot track run, not blistering fast|
|cold run, fast run, hard run, happy run|
there have been long rides in the rain...
|boo to cold rain, yay for hot pink Pearl iZUMi & PunkRockRacing gear|
A couple weeks ago I did the Peaks to Portland 2.4 mile point to point ocean swim as part of my training (1:16) and had a blast! So awesome!! I cannot wait to do this again next year-

|The only way back now is to swim!|

The next day was a pretty exciting day of racing too. However, I was only the spectator to hubbs first half marathon!! That was pretty cool and deserves it's own post!!
