Mooooving into Winter this week!

Today was beautiful day for a run! I headed out for an easy 5 mile run and just enjoyed the day as Stock show weather is coming! Looks like sub zero and teen temps will be here for the week which is par for the course when the Stock show is in town. And speaking of Stock show my son was riding in the Stock show parade thru downtown Denver this past Thursday. It was a fabulous day for a parade!

That's my son Josh in the middle. Looks excited doesn't he?

Training the last couple of weeks has been a little off. Fighting thru a darn cold would be the cause of this. I'm feeling back to normal now and hope to do a little bit better this week.

Spent the afternoon with Kathleen drinking coffee hearing about her adventures at Ironman Arizona as a volunteer this past November (she signed up for 2011!), discussing the upcoming year, and a lot of time with her reassuring me that, yes I will be able to do that 1/2 Ironman. :)

This is how 2011 is shaping up:
Platte River 1/2 marathon 4/10/11 (registered)
Community Classic Bike Tour 5/15/11 (Metric Century - tentative)
Boulder Sunrise 6/4/11 (registered but depending on weather may skip signed up for free for volunteering last year)
Denver Century 6/12/11(Century-tentative)
5430 SPRINT 6/19/11 (registered)
BOULDER PEAK 7/10/11 (registered)
IRONMAN 70.3 BOULDER 8/7/11 (registered)

That's how it stands right now. I'm pretty sure there will be some others added in. Maybe some running races in the next couple months as well as maybe another sprint at the end of the season. I'm ready to get started!
