2014 Races

I started off the year with my “A” race – Oceanside 70.3.  I am asked “what’s next”.  So without further ado here is my 2014 race line up.

  1. I love that you and your husband train together. My husband and I often train and race together. It is nice to understand where each other is at and know what the other is going through. Sometimes we recognize symptoms (need of fuel, exhaustion, etc.) in each other before we figure it out for ourselves 😉

    1. Thanks Kecia. That is so wonderful you train and race together. My husband and I didn’t start out training together. We also have completely different mindsets about training and racing. He is just out to have fun and maintain where as I want to PR and set baselines for the next level. He has no intention of completing a full iron but he enjoys the smaller distances. We even have our kids interested. I am extremely grateful for the interest and involvement and support. I agree that training together and racing together gives a little bit better understanding of what each other is going through. My husband finished his first Olympic distance last month (so proud of him). He shared with me that all he kept thinking about on the run was that his wife would still be riding her bike in a half iron – puts things in perspective. 🙂

      1. The perspective is something we all need reminders of from time to time 😉 While my husband and I train together and do the same races, we often have very different goals. I am very type A and he is very type Z 😉
