And now, the rest of the weekend in pictures to limit my writing time 🙂 I finished in 31:25 and 15 finished in 25:08. The best part was the ramp entrance into the stadium at the end. It was a perfect downhill and it totally shot you into sprint mode no matter how tired you... Continue Reading →
Dear blustery day
You just turned what should have been my fastest 5k race yet into the hardest run I've ever done and I'm counting the 5-8 mile training runs I've completed!! Lord, that was so damn hard. Wind gusts up to 30mph all morning and they ONLY seemed to be coming at our faces or from the... Continue Reading →
It would take me all day to post pics and story in here, so, here's my favorite shot from the day: He looks good, but he is running past his dad and I asking "Is it NORMAL to not be able to feel my hands or feet?!" Well, yeah, when you've already swam in that... Continue Reading →
Fearless 5K race – we did it!
I finished in 30:36 with a pace of 9:52 - which is well under my goal of 33mins - I broke the 10:00 mile pace! Wahoo!! 45 mins after my wave - Alex and I traded places: Alex didn't quite meet his goal of a sub-20minute run. But considering he stopped to throw up at... Continue Reading →
This is a massive race weekend for us. Alex and I are both running in the 5k on Saturday and he (and all of our Leg UP teammates) is doing the triathlon. It's a little different because it is swim/bike/run/swim/bike/run - yep, 6 laps. The TOTAL distance is still the same as a classic sprint... Continue Reading →
La Jolla Cove
I don't mean to only post updates on Sundays, but....here we go again! No formal race event today, but the training group did invite us out for some open water swim time at La Jolla Cove. While they were in the water, I took pictures. Some of the swimmers, some of the wildlife all around... Continue Reading →
Quickie race results
More complete race report (combo of me and the participant) later this week. I'm zapped out! From the time stamps on the tweets I sent this morning: 6:55am - in the water, staying towards the back to avoid being kicked or getting in the way of the fast swimmers. First race in a wet suit...

Well, THAT was a crazy 20 minutes!
Ever have a totally unexpected whirlwind of time when people and events just swirled into each other unexpectedly & you were in the center trying to keep everyone spinning in their proper directions? Yeah, well, it just happened and it's a good thing I've had most of this week off & have done a fair... Continue Reading →
Time Trial #2
Positive Condition #1 : Second TT so we knew what we were doing. Positive Condition #2: We did not have to spring forward our clocks the night before thereby losing even MORE sleep. In fact, we both actually SLEPT quite soundly from 10-4. Perhaps having a relaxing, filling dinner with R&E Sat night helped! Positive... Continue Reading →
