ready to race...

... three weekends in a row.

This weekend, July 28th is the Papillion Mayor's Triathlon. A sprint distance race here in the area. The Cornhusker State Games (which I did last year) are on Sunday and so I will be interested to see what the turn out is for both. I have a buddy that is doing the State Games but I didn't know he had registered until I had already signed up for Papillion. Good Luck Eric, I'll be cheering for you.

On August 4th is the Ironhorse Sprint triathlon in North Platte, NE. This would be Tri-Dummy's home turf. He will be racing with his son that day which is very cool! I am also hoping to meet Duane as I may have mentioned before. I believe he will be doing the Super Sprint division of that race, but don't quote me on that.

Then the following weekend is August 12, which is the Des Moines Big Creek Triathlon. This is an Olympic Distance Race and it will be interesting to see how it goes after the two previous weekends. I am going to give it the best I have. It is supposed to be flat and fast so hopefully that will be a PR in the making.

Been a nice easy week of training. Nothing serious although I did fall off the nutrition today by eatting some processed foods that I normally wouldn't. That is okay for one day, but back on tomorrow. I did manage to pass up the cake at the baby shower I was at so that was a step in the right direction I suppose.

Have a nice end of the week to you all and be ready for a string of race reports in the the next month. I know, you can hardly wait. =0)

I started having Big Creek dreams last night! I dreamed that I got lost on the run course and then cheated and just ran back to the start.

Anyways, the bike portion is totally flat and fast - I rode most of it the other day for practice. Without being in race mode, I managed to average about 17 mph (somewhere in the 17s is usually my race pace) and there were good chunks where I could stay in the the 20-25 mph range for a while. But it is a *very* exposed course, so if it is windy out, it could be rough.

Hey KT! Are you driving in to North Platte the morning of the race or the evening before?

Hi KT! Best of luck this weekend! Make sure you buy Drew a bunch of Tequilla shots... that's his favorite and he says that they don't effect him... at all... even after 12 of them.... no really... its the truth. Bah ha ha!
