Ironman? Denver Rock 'n' Roll 1/2 Marathon

Well kind of...on my wandering around on different blogs I discovered the 4th Annual CONTACT Cape-Atlantic Triathlon/Duathlon all you have to do is complete Ironman distances between January 18th and February 18th. Should be piece of cake right? Well I don't know but I'm signed up and I'm going to give it a try. I'm hoping it is just the boost I need to get my training going.

I actually went to the pool this weekend! I can not believe that I have not been in the water since September...not good. Lost a lot of fitness. I just took it real slow and easy and did 800 yards. I forgot that I had actually come to enjoy swimming. It is so relaxing. I just love being in the water.

And last but not least....registration for the Denver Marathon opened today. I just finished signing up for the 1/2 marathon. Maybe I should have gone back and read my post for training for my 1st 1/2. :) I couldn't resist the lower price for the first 500 to sign up. I usually end up putting things off until the are the most expensive. I'm actually pretty excited. Excited by the fact that it is now a Rock 'n' Roll event and excited by the fact that some of my family may also be running. My son also made mention of the fact that he may want to run, but before I sign him up he will have to show he is really going to put that kind of work into running. Right now he has many, many balls in the air and I'm not sure he has the time or real interest in that much running.

So I guess what this post is all about is getting up off my a$$ and getting it done. Are we ready for some training?!?!?!?!

Good for you!

I will see you at RNR in October! It's going to be my PR attempt. I just love that race. :)

Was that the race you volunteered at a few years ago? Maybe I'm wrong....I remember running the marathon in horrible weather....I might have you confused with someone else.

Tea I did volunteer for the Denver marathon 2 years ago and the weather was beautiful, but I heard the year before that was rotten. Keeping fingers croseed that it will be nice this year!
