Well my schedule has gone crazy this year, so I am going to have to start doing events as a Virtual Team.
Step One Find a TNT event that I can run with my schedule.
Step Two Find the cost of the event and make that my 25 percent of the GUAL to raise be able to go.
StepThree Raise double that GUAL! AND TRAIN TRAIN TRAIN!
Step Four RUN MARATHON MAYBE A TRI?
This will be my first time trying this, so I'll keep posting here about the process.
Ken we have teammates that have crazy schedules that rarely if at all come to group trainings, but they are still part of the team, and since you know your coaches and all you might not need to do the virtual, but whatever way you go we are right behind you. And as you know we have angels, far too many angels, that line our running trails our bike paths our swimming pools, so you are never alone. Go Team.
1st thing is you are one of my personnel heroes, thank you for your inspiration and for helping others.
2nd things is you are right I am lucky to have three of the best coaches that any one could have not only coaches but they always give more than they take. They to are people I look to for inspiration to make myself a better person.
The reason I am looking at Virtual is for the events, not the training. I do most of my training on my own. But I am never alone I hear Barry, michele, and Joy talking to me as I run, swim or bike. But I am having trouble with the event schedule again so I am looking for an event that works with my schedule. I can not stop I just lost another friend yesterday name Mario. And now he is an angel running with me.
God Bless and Thank you !
Sorry, Ken, a little slow on the uptake, thought you were worried about the training schedule not the actual event schedule. So what events are you considering? Think Columbia Triathlon next spring, right around the corner from me. Or Marine Corps Marathon this fall, of course Fla already does that don't they? Baltimore Marathon?
I am not being selfish here or anything. lol.
Send me the information on the Baltimore Marathon and the Columbia Triathlon, I will be working out of country during the Marine Corps Marathon.
