Can't believe how fast time goes by!!! Halloween is this weekend... in no time we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving (and eating a TON :) ) and then Xmas and that will be it for 2009!
Good ol' Fall... it's been chilly and cold... and gray and rainy.. and windy and eh.... I miss those summer days when we could go out and ride or run for a while. The flip side of this season is the change of colors, there are some nice days where you can go for a run, enjoy the view and just have a great run... no matter what speed, pace or anything, simply enjoy the run and your surroundings.
It's been a great season, lots of races and of course the big one for me: Ironman Louisville in August. In less than two weeks I'm going to Las Vegas to do my last 2009 tri: Silverman (half iron distance). I don't feel too great about it since after Louisville I took a well deserved -but way too long- break... This is a very hard tri and I'll do my best, I know my time won't be a fantastic time but I'm still doing it. It'll be interesting to say the least. I'm excited about going to Vegas for the first time.
Been thinking about next year and what races I'd like to do... got a few in mind but nothing for sure yet. I'll post my race schedule for 2010 soon... I will say though, there will be another Ironman race next year.
After Silverman I am planning on taking another break, this one will be short... probably hit the gym and start focusing in core workouts. Knowing myself I'll find some running races in the area so I can 1- get my butt out in the cold weather, 2- work in my running form/speed and 3- try to stay motivated.
I also need to start posting more often... I'm such a slacker!
Adios for now!
