I've teased in a couple of posts about what's on the horizon for the rest of the season and so here's the big reveal! The first one:
In two weeks I'm doing my FIFTIETH triathlon!
The Sandling Beach 50 in Raleigh is a mile swim + 40-mile bike + 9-mile run and it will mark my 50th triathlon since 2008! [HERE'S the story of my first one.] The idea started earlier in the year, but I don't quite know what sparked it. I was hoping that IM Santa Rosa was going to be THE ONE. I counted up all my tris - including relays - and thought I could make it. But, I skipped two races this spring and one got cancelled and so I had to readjust.
What it means is that I'm cramming FOUR races between August 19 and October 1: Riverlights Sprint, White Lake International, White Lake Sprint (the next day), the WB YMCA Sprint and finally the Sandling Beach race.
I can't believe this will be number 50! I've come a long way and I can't wait to do 50 more!
