It's official.....

Dear JULIE ,

Congratulations! You are officially registered for the Triathlon Individual Intermediate during the Creek Streak, which will take place on 08/07/2010. We look forward to seeing you on race day.




I guess I'm going to do it. At least now I feel confident that I can do it...it will just take me awhile!

It's been a pretty good week of workouts. I came up one swim short but otherwise got all my training in. Did my long run, 7 miles this morning and I can not believe how good I felt! I did a 30 mile bike ride on Saturday and a 19 on Friday as well as a 6 mile run on Thursday, so I was thinking, that I just might not make 7 miles...especially fairly hilly miles. After the first mile I felt really good. Now it wasn't that speedy of a run, I believe my pace ended up just over 13, but that included hills the first 5 miles, 1 potty stop, several short stop lights, one reallllllyyyyyyy long stop light and sitting down to get rocks out of my shoes. All in all one great run! Really restored my faith in myself.

So my Schedule for August.....

1st Tri for the Cure

7th Creek Streak

21st Holy Cow 10k (not sure about this one. I've wanted to do it for years the last time I signed up it got canceled due to crazy rains and flooding of the paths)

28th Iron Girl Sprint

Looks like a busy month! I'm still playing with the idea of Crescent Moon in September. Or possibly some other sprint. I really enjoyed the Crescent Moon last year though and love the sweatshirt! Any other good fall races that you Colorado folks like?

Glad to hear that the training is going well for you! Makes me smile.

I have done the Crescent Moon for the past two years and will be considering it again this year. After all the races in Boulder it would be nice to do one back "home".
