Three Things Thursday

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.

Happy Thursday (almost Friday)!

  1. Off to check out that featured post! You know I love me some "Athlete's Plate" action 😉 Um, at first I read "compete in 70.3" and I was like WHAT?! Whoa. And "not in PR shape" has never stopped you before…I'm excited to see how the weekend pans out 😉

  2. Ugh, avacadoes! I used to not mind them, but then, when I was preggo with Norah, I threw up an avacado dish, and now whenever I look at them, I feel a little ill.

  3. wow! you are awesome! I found your blog a little over a month ago when I was training for my first sprint tri…..and I have to tell you, you have been one of the biggest inspirations to me. Not sure I have commented until now. I am now signed up for anothe sprint tri and a half marathon both in the next 6 weeks. I love seeing what you eat to keep fueled. I wish I could find the time to squeeze more workouts in…but I love how you do it! Good luck this weekend, and thank you for being such motivation to me!

  4. Man you had me at 70.3 and thought holy sh*t she jumped in with both feet…..and then read relay and not that that isn't awesome but you know me and triathlon and all the air left my bubble.Enjoy Syracuse. I went to college at Oswego and will always remember my times spent in Syracuse.And we are known as tri-nablers…..HA!

  5. I've ALMOST gotten to run in a tri-relay twice (as understudy) but the injured party has always managed to rally at the last moment. I think you'll have a ball this week end. I hope the weather's kind to you.

Say what?
