Feeling better today despite not sleeping well. I took a nap yesterday afternoon and that threw off my sleeping schedule. Anyway, I am very excited to release my 06/07 racing schedule!
10.8.06 Akron Towpath Marathon Relay
I get to be the anchor (what was my team thinking!!?). 5.5 miles This will be my first race after my run hiatus. I did a 5 miler in July in 39 minutes, so we'll so how much my time off has hurt me. Should be a lot of fun. My team is run by Jen , a fellow first time IMer in 2007. I am so excited to have her as a training buddy this year. It should be a great trip!
October/ November CTC duathlon seies
3 races 2 different lengths. Pure torture to those of us who love to swim and hate to run. But whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger, huh?
December 10, 2006 Las Vegas Half Marathon
Vegas baby, Vegas
This was supposed to be with my dad who is nursing a broken leg. But both parents will be there for support. Who am I kidding, they're just going out there to gamble. But I think they'll get a kick out of the atmosphere. And there are some CTC folks headed out there too.
Any of my blog's lurkers going out for this one? Email me!
March 31, 2007 California 70.3
Finally I am going to do a half! Unfortunately I had to choose just about the most expensive option. Well, there weren't many good options for super early season halfs. I need plenty of recovery time for the full. Thankfully I, and my roommate Matt who I am trying to convince to do it with me, have family in San Diego, so housing won't be an issue. Just that pesky flight and bike shipping.
And Finally, the moment we've all been waiting for.....
June 24th 2007 Ironman Coeur d' Alene!
Need I say more?
So now I'm off to pack. I'm starting to get excited for the conference. It's my favorite of the conferences I go to. It attracts mostly MDs, so it is a highly clinical ordeal. Being stuck in the throngs of science nerdery it's nice to duck out of the laboratory and see what happens to our drugs once they leave our hands. Unfortunately, working with antibiotics we get to hear all about how quickly bugs become resistant to the drugs we test. But that's our expertise, so it's all good. I'm just excited for all the shwag I can get at the expo. If I get there early enough I might be able to finally get the customized laser pointer with my name on it! It's the little things that excite me...
