So another year has almost come and gone. They go by more quickly than ever now and each passing year means that I have less time to be here enjoying those I love and doing what I love doing.
I have the option to draw my SS money right now. But I love my job too much to even consider retiring next year. Maybe one more, and then???
Thank you Ali’i for having me as a team member this year! I love their kits and bought a ROKA wetsuit through being a member. Was comfortable racing this season for sure.
I had a good local race season. Didn’t travel anywhere to race except to work in a 5k with my nephew back in Ohio. I had podium finishes in all my races except the 5K, with all being firsts except for an Oly tri where my hammies kept cramping up and I practically walked the entire 10k, so faded to 2nd in AG. So mortifying! Gotta figure out what the trigger is…it’s definitely NOT dehydration or electrolyte imbalances. More pickle juice I guess! It’s all about choosing one’s race venues right?
Next year? It’s being planned-tentatively. A mountain bike event in Prescott is being tossed around. I almost won the Whiskey Row marathon there years ago and I would love to go back and see that course again-most of the mountain bike course is on the marathon course I hear. Maybe a two mile swim in Redding…and some local stuff including a back-to-back Oly one day followed by a Sprint the next day!
Have you ever done back to back tris? How was it?
Have a great break from racing for a short while! Get strong! Get focused! 2016 race season will be here before you know it!
