1. Today I’m featured on The Athlete’s Plate by the Athletes over at Cook Train Eat Race (Tri Harder). Jason and I first connected in December of last year when SUAR nominated me for a spot on his original version of The Athlete’s Plate – seen here. Jason quickly became one of my primary “tri-pushers” as we bonded over our early morning wake-up calls and mutual love affair with PB&J. Ever since I finally took the plunge and joined the “dark side”, he has been extremely enthusiastic and supportive, and has become one of my biggest tri-spirations.
Check it out HERE to see what I’m eating and what Jason thinks!
2. J at Morning Runner was kind enough to invite me to write a guest post to share during her honeymoon this week. Congratulations to J and her new hubby on their recent wedding (which happened to take place on my wedding anniversary)! I hunted down a few sneak peak pics and everything about their special day was absolutely stunning. I can’t wait to read all about it! For now, I hope the newlyweds are having a fantastic time on their honeymoon.
I chose the topic of tune-up races and you can read it HERE.
3. This weekend I am off to Syracuse to compete in the Ironman 70.3 on a relay team with the usual suspect. I’m just doing the easy part, although it’s hard to say how “easy” running a half marathon in the middle of the day is going to be. No specific goals; I know I’m not in PR shape, but I hope to run a decent race in the ~1:50 range. Mostly I’m just pumped to see my partner kick some serious butt on the swim and bike at her goal race for the season. Look out – Team Girls On Your Left is coming! Some other friends (including geodee who is going to talk bikes with me the entire car ride – right? right?) are racing too and it’s sure to be an epic weekend.
