As you know, I have been too busy with my career to pay much attention to my blog. Or training for that matter. I love my job, and am doing really well at it. So, it has paid off to put my competitive drive into that aspect of my life. But I miss training and racing and I am in the worst shape I’ve been in since 2007. Don’t get me wrong, I am still in good shape. I’m just no longer a lean mean triathlon machine. And I miss that.
I was just about to succumb to the blue pill and forget about racing. I mean why not just become a gym rat? Why not work out just enough to not get fat?
Along comes Finish Strong announcing a new race called the UnNamed Half Ironman. In September. At the New Hope Overlook park on Jordan Lake. Hmmmmm….sounds very familiar. It sounds very much like a race I used to have a love/hate relationship with. A race that they cancelled on me. A race that I still have a monkey on my back about.
To top it off, they are giving out Arm Warmers and a Hoodie! I will race for Arm Warmers and a Hoodie!!!!!
