There about 55 of us participating in the triathlon in March. Team in Training divided us into "teams" and I have six great teammates. We started a team blog and here is the link: http://weswimbikerun.blogspot.com. It gives you a different perspective than mine on the training (but who really needs that when you have my weekly blogs? but I post there too, so check it out! )
Today I went to the pool on my own. Without my teammates, pushing myself was a little difficult. I swam about half a mile and then the engines shut down and I was pooped. Unfortunately, I missed my run yesterday b/c I had too much school work to finish. So today is a SWIM & RUN practice day. I'm about to head out for a run whie the sun is still out. Which is getting rarer in Seattle these days. We shall see how long I last. I bought a super nerdy triathlon watch to keep my pace and it has a heart monitor too. Can't wait to try it out. Will probably do less running and more playing with the thing. oh well!
I also want to thank everyone who has donated. I have raised over $2000. Amazing! I am one-third of the way there. Its pretty cool to see how generous people are, esp. during the holiday season. I am extremely grateful. Thank you, thank you!
ps. I just got the new US Weekly in the mail. The title is "How Angelina Tortures Jen" - it just cracked me up. Thought I would share. You would be amazed how thirty minutes on the stationary bike passes by when you are reading one of these magazines. Its like a diabetic craving sugar - I just can't get enough celebrity gossip!
