I love to be active. I also suffer from an extremely short attention span most of the time. So, triathlons are the perfect activity for me because just when i start getting bored with one thing I jump right into the next. These days, however, triathletes have gotten a pretty bad rap for being major douchers, but I don't really care because i think the races are great. (and generally speaking, actual TRIATHLETES aren't lame...PEOPLE who do triathlons are lame.)
So anyway, this year I decided that I wanted to participate in as many races as I could. I have done one so far (http://www.bashwintertri.com/) and it was pretty sweet. I had never cross-country skied before so the week of the race i strapped on some skis and went and practiced at a park. I was terrible. I wasn't much better in the race but i looked pretty hardcore, which is all that really
Anyway, i had a blast and was glad that i did it.
On the agenda for this year i have a few more triathlons I would like to compete in.
1. The Battle at Midway- June 19 http://www.bamtri.com/
2. The Lake Powell Tri - October 7 http://www.goldmedalracing.com/Events/EventHome.aspx?event=Powell
and maybe one more in the middle of the summer, i don't know though.
This years Wasatch Back Relay Race is also on the agenda. My family and friends do it every year (which i believe i can officially say now considering its my 3rd year participating and my siblings 4th year).
And finally, there are a hand full of bike races I plan on competing in, many of which with my brother, Big Toph. Busy, busy, busy! I cant wait.
So, the point of informing what ever my readership may be of my summer race agenda is because i am going to use this blog to keep myself on track as I train, like log my miles and what not. I need accountability in my life and this will help...hopefully. So I'll start today.
Run: 4.63 Miles. 8.2 min/mile
Swim: 1500 yrds (mixed workout)
