Two-a Days!?!?

That's right! Yesterday's workouts consisted of swimming and running. Since I had plans to go see Wake women's basketball at Maryland after work, I needed to get my workout in before work. So my alarm clock started beeping at me at 4:15am and I rolled out of bed to head to the pool. I arrived at 4:55am, thinking the pool opened at 5am. Not the case :o( So I headed to the gym and completed my 45 minute run, and then went back to the pool for my 30 minute swim. So while all of you slackers, I mean sane people ;o), were sleeping, I was getting my sweat on!

In other exciting triathlon training news...

I should have a fresh pair of kicks waiting for me when I get home today. (Don't be alarmed by the sissy blue color in the picture. I went with the black and gray pair!) I'll be testing them out this weekend!

I also learned today that I am the top fundraiser out of all the other Capital of Texas Triathlon participants with over $2000!! So I want to give a huge shout out to everyone that has contributed to the cause. I wouldn't be there without you! And I may have considered hitting the snooze button a few times yesterday morning had I not had such an outpouring of support!

Tomorrow we have a group bike ride, weather permitting, and the Honored Teammate Picnic. This is a chance for everyone to meet and hear from cancer fighters and survivors, some of which are training alongside us. Its bound to be an emotional and inspirational morning, and I'm looking forward to it.

Thanks again for your continued support! Keep spreading the word on my behalf and come back soon! Until next time...

  1. Top Fundraiser! I'm impressed. Even more impressed that you're getting up at 4:30 am for workouts. I'm getting my best sleep at that time. Nice choice on shoes. Hope they're comfy. Keep up the good work.
