1. Rugged Maniac! It’s here! This weekend I will be rolling in the mud and attempting to pull my plentiful behind over obstacles. Good news is the weather prediction is good for Saturday. This time of year we could have had anything, but right now they are saying high 70’s or even 80 degrees. I have to say I almost as nervous for this as the 70.3
2. Running Clubs what do you think of them? Do you belong to one? I received a yearly membership to one when I did the personal motivator for the Skirt Chaser and it sounds great, however many if not most of their runs are not that convenient. I’ve been made aware of another one that is much closer and I’m planning to check it out. But I’m wondering what your thoughts are on them? Would I be better off to join a triathlon club?
3. I’m feeling very unprepared for this ½ marathon that I’m planning on ( but have not yet signed up for) running the first weekend in November. I've missed a couple of short runs but I have pretty much stuck to the training program. My long run this weekend is suppose to be 9 miles...that just seems so far from 13. I would guess though that what I’m doing is pretty comparable to the training I’ve done in the past. Maybe it's the lack of swimming and biking in my life. I feel like a real slacker. Do you ever feel prepared for a race? I guess I've gotten to the point where I pretty much feel prepared for the shorter distances (sprint's, 5k maybe even 10k) but these longer ones still get me.
P.S. Did you hear there is going to be some new tri's in town? Including a full distance! Check it out! HITS Fort Collins
