Race Weekend!!!!!

This is a action packed weekend!  I have my work 5K tomorrow (www.betheonerun.org) that my coworkers and I signed up for in January, and formed a team and raised money for the Be The Match Foundation....and we raised $6,000!  Wahoo!

First 5K of the Year!

Now it is supposed to be wet, wet, and did I mention even more wet tomorrow morning as we run around Lake Harriet.  BUT it will be warm!  I can do wet if its hot......ok that sounds a little dirty...but true! LOL!

Anyways, it will be chip timed, so I am hopeful I can do a decent pace (I am not trying to win it or anything), because I don't want to wear myself out because....SUNDAY IS MY FIRST TRIATHLON!  YEAH!!!!  Well, indoor Triathlon, but it sill counts!

Oh yeah!


I am doing the LTF Indoor Triathlon at Eagan on Sunday.  It's pretty simple, 10 min swim, a 10 min transition (get naked and change into my cycle/running stuff), 30 minutes on the bike in the cycle studio, 5 min transition to the treadmill, and 20 min on that and I am done!) I must admit I am a little nervous (the swim part makes me REALLY nervous) but I will get through it I am sure.  I hope those swimming lessons will pay off!

Another thing I am looking forward to is...my first race report!  Not only one but 2!  Lucky you will get to read them.  Wish me luck!

Finally, everyone read about my previous post of why I get up and run (read it here) and I have some great news:  Alie got to go home!!!!!!  Not the apartment at the UofM, but her own home!  She is such a strong girl!  Keep her in your thoughts and prayers!

  1. Good Luck with both races, you'll do great. And that's awesome to hear about Alie. Dorthy said it best, "there's no place like home".
