Me Against The World

Friends, today I am telling you that the WHOLE entire world was against me. Seriously, the bus driver HAD to be 10 minutes late, and let people in along the way, and those people HAD to have an accident on the 403, and then I had to get on a bus where people had just the intention of slowing me down, and getting on at one stop and getting off at the very next stop. Seriously. It was all a conspiracy theory. Seriously. I got to Port Credit at 6:45pm....they left at 6:30...and I thought I would get there in time so I didn't save my transfer and had to pay agian.

Seriously, it was NOT a good day.

But I do have an announcement...

I am tentatively, maybe, possibly, not guaranteed, training for something that has been dancing around in this little head of mine for several months, and I may have just found the perfect one..

The dance...Ironman Muskoka 70.3...
I probably said that ALL wrong, but that is what the group on facebook is called...

It's in October 2008. I have OVER a year to train. I've already started Swimming. I swam 12 laps yesterday. It was exhausting. But, its a start right? Right.

Looks like tomorrows 22 is going to happen, and I start riding the bike on Saturday morning.

So this is what I am thinking. I am not accountable for this race. It's an idea and we will see how I can handle the time committment and stuff. Who knows. I think it will be fun.

Just thought that you should know. I have actually been thinking about this for about a I guess it is kind of official.

Train smart, finish strong.

That would be really cool, but its filling up fast. You registered? With your running ability, you can get ready for a half iron in a year. That's good stuff. Good luck with whatever decision you make.

I find that when the world conspires against you, the best remedy is chaos :-)

Aw shucks, being accountable is half the fun! I find many runners making the transition to tri's and are doing very well. I just don't have the time to train in THREE different discipines, but have been giving some thoughts to an Ultra race of 50-100 miles (of course this is after the Boston Marathon)
