Thanks to some of my triathlete friends (Corey, Holly, Jamie and others), I’m strongly considering a sprint triathlon. Holly told me about several in the next few months, and the one that’s most appealing is at the end of June. It’s a 300m pool swim, short 10 mile bike, and 3 mile run. Very doable.
I was still on the fence about signing up, but checked their website today to learn that registration is full. Bummer! I guess I’ll keep looking… and honestly, maybe it’s a good thing! It was March when I last got into the pool, and possibly longer since I did an outdoor ride. I’m sure spinning would count for something, but it’s not the same.
On a running note, remember the Astros 10k where I lucked out to place first in my age group? Besides the gift card (gone already on a much-needed new swim suit!), they also gave out free tickets to an Astros game, and age group winners were invited to participate in a short pre-race ceremony. My husband loves baseball so we decided to turn it into a date night out on Wednesday evening.
I got there just in time, and ended up at the end of the line. We all took pictures of the players, although I couldn’t tell you their names.
Afterwards, I headed up to my seat. I like baseball for a couple of hours, and then I’m done. We made it to the 7th inning stretch.
Finally, I am featured on Fit Mom in Training today, go check it out! 🙂
Am I the only one who struggles to make it to the end of a baseball game?
And, what I’d really love to know, would you consider a triathlon?
