1. I did the annual turkey trot a week ago. It was so much warmer than the year before. Warm, no but warmer. I did okay - slow. But apparently well enough to get 3 and out of quite a few too. But I didn't hang around for prizes as they take forever. All racers finish first including the 10K and then it takes forever as they have lots of random prizes. The prizes are great but I didn't have the time. Monday I got an email from the race director offering to mail me my medal, which I actually didn't know I had won. I was thrilled because I hate not getting a prize I have won!
2. Bike goals -
C. I stated that I wanted to ride at least once in November - check!
B. I wanted to ride past November 17 which was my last day of riding last year. Check.
A. I wanted to ride at least once a week in November. Check.
AA. I want to ride at least once in December. We'll see. I am hoping to ride tomorrow but I don't know.
I am really hating giving up the bike this year.
3. Last night I got an email which first caused me to laugh and then just be astounded. I qualified for the USA Triathlon 2015 Age Group National Championships. It was from the Pumpkinman when I won my age group. There were very few of us soooo. But I'm going to be proud. First, I am out there doing it. Second, I haven't been doing tris long so hey! Third, I had a really horrible triathlon experience this summer and I didn't quit that race or let that experience stop me from doing more this summer. The championships are in Milwaukee and I can't see spending the money to come in last! The odd thing is I qualified for the Olympic distance which I have never done. But it's neat to be able to say I qualified for a national event.
