I haven't been training properly and events are LOOMING!! I am going to do a half-marathon this Sunday. Was supposed to do the full but just not there. I did do 24 miles when I was out on the Houston Marathon course as a TNT "coach" but that is not the same type of miles - lots of walking - not a whole lot of running.
The next big event after this weekend will be the Lone Star Triathlon in Galveston on March 30 - I am signed up for the half-iron distance. CRAZY!!
I was supposed to do the Texas Independence Relay, but the team I was on deferred to next year due to too many people with injuries. Kinda sucks, but c'est la vie. One plus - I can now do the Rodeo Run.
A couple weeks ago I did the Mardi Gras Beach Run (10K) and the Rockets Run (5K) with some friends. We had a blast!! Both runs had a down hill right before the finish line and it was great. For the Mardi Gras run it wasn't that big of a deal, but I know I finished the Rockets Run in under 36 minutes because of those ramps that took all finishers to center court of the Toyota Center! Gotta love them down hills!
After the half-iron I will be doing the MS150 two weeks later. Needless to say - my weekends are going to be pretty booked up with bike rides and running events the next several weeks. And my weekdays with swimming, running and biking!!
Oh - and by the way - I am also looking to buy a house - and my lease is up the end of April!
