I Run/ride/Swim/Race Because I CAN!

I am SO EXCITED to participate in a group run with my TNT group this weekend!

I was at the first run of the season and then in the weeks since then, Michael has been the priority in our time. I've missed three rides and a couple of runs with the group, but I'm proud of myself for not skipping out on the workouts altogether. I've done every single one and surprise of all surprises to me is that I actually did them how I was supposed to - ie: working on cadence, not cutting them short and actually DOING my swim drills exactly as directed. Hmm...maybe this will be my year at Pac Crest!

I'm also super happy to have these wonderful bibs to wear tomorrow and at every training run and ride up through Pac Crest.

I think Races2Remember is the most awesome company. They have personalized bibs, tattoos, signs and much more. I heard about them through another blog and just love them, so I wanted to pay it forward to someone else who might be in the need of their products. Check them out - I bet you'll find something you can't live without :-)

Happy Friday to all and enjoy your training and racing this weekend! Let's Run/Ride/Swim/Race BECAUSE WE CAN!!!!!!

So glad you mentioned Pacific Crest, made me smile to think about this summer and all the fun races ahead.

When people ask me why I swim/bike/run so much, I often tell them "because I can." They don't get it.

I have always wanted to be a Coach for TNT. I gotta do that one of these days. I think I'd be a good one.

Great job on not missing any workouts.

I didn't know about this company, but it sounds like a great idea! I am so jealous of group runs. They are so much more fun! It think I should look into joining a team or something too...

Simply Life said...
