From Zero to Two Races...

So I haven't raced since Louisville and I have not one but two races coming up this weekend!

My first race will be a 20 miler on Sat.

I actually wish I wasn't doing this race, but I know it's a good way to get in my last super long run before MCM. I guess I am not that excited about it because I am not really racing it. I also would rather being doing the Giant Acorn oly distance race taking place the same day and just do my 20 mile run on Sunday. Oh well.

Then the following day, I will be doing the Giant Acorn Sprint Tri.

I am excited about this race. I want to do well but yeah I know going fast is not in the cards for me. Number one, my training hasn't been great. Number two, I am running 20 miles the day before so my legs are going to be less than fresh. Tired legs makes it hard to go fast. boo. I am sure I will have fun never the less and looking forward to tri-ing again. I just have to remember not to be disappointed with my splits and total time. Easier said than done.

Happy Tuesday All :) 


  1. So brave getting right back into it! I took a long break last time! Good luck!

  2. Good luck! Sounds like it will be a fun weekend!

  3. What a fun weekend of racing! DC seems to have so many more races than San Diego...I've never even heard of a 15k or 20 mile race here and only two marathons.

  4. I hope you have two great races this weekend! That triathlon looks like it will be fun!

  5. Wow, impressive! Especially so soon after IMLou!
