Tri Training

June marked the beginning of my triathlon aspirations. That month quickly melted away, much the same as the stick of deodorant I forgot in the car, and I have now found myself in July. The training is still going strong and I have managed to transpose my sick running obsession onto the whole triathlon thing. Sunday will mark my first triathlon. My good running buddy Jimmy signed us up for the Couples Triathlon (horrible name for it not requiring you to actually be a couple). This is only a sprint tri (800m swim, 11.2 mile bike, 3.1 mile run) so it shouldn't be too terribly brutal. I'll let you all know how it goes.

Yes, I have apparently forgotten how to write. Hopefully I will become more productive on here and that might inspire the mental juices to flow once again. (And yes, I am aware that they never flowed with much force.)


  1. How did the "Two Dudes Who Aren't Actually A Couple" Tri go?

  2. Did you wave at everyone during the race?

    You'd be proud of me - during my Tu/Thu runs around City Park Lake, I often see a man riding his funny bicycle with the super tall handlebars and I always wave at him. He seems to genuinely appreciate it.

  3. That is awesome Amber! I actually did manage to wave to most of the volunteers along the way. I am hoping that counts.
