With the past year being an athletic roller coaster I can't describe how awesome it is to be back in racing form. Having thoughts and concerns last winter about not being able to run or compete in triathlons again, it was a little disheartening. I can only say how blessed I am to be back on track. Consider it a tough lesson learned.
So for the summer I've signed up for the following races: Cherry Roubaix State Road Race on August 12th and the Charlevoix Triathlon the following weekend. Both will be great tests of my fitness level.
I also signed up for another Ironman. My tri buddy Dave Smith sent me a text, "If Ironman Lake Placid goes online tomorrow I'm thinking of signing up." I responded, "ok. I'm in." The next day I dropped an absurd amount of money on another chance to make by body hurt and feel terrible the next day. It's not too dissimilar a comparison to drug addiction. I know better, but can't help it. So July 28, 2013 Dave and I will be competing together. Should be a grand time!
