Pulled the trigger

We’ve both been considering some races for the fall as we’ve been training through the summer. Here’s the confirmed lineup.

Brian is competing in the Lobsterman Triathlon in Freeport Maine, recommended by our Ironman dentist and Triathlon magazine as “the” Olympic distance triathlon to do in New England.

To continue reliving my 2000 season, I’m running the “Around Cape Ann15 mile race on Labor Day as a marathon tune-up. This race – and Brian – kicked my butt 9 years ago, but I’ve been doing more hill work this time, so hopefully it will be less painful. I also pulled the trigger and registered for the Bay State Marathon on October 18. Maybe I will even be one of the 38% of runners who clock a Boston qualifying time!

Of course we’re both registered to run the Disney Half-marathon with Leslie in January.

It’s incentive to keep putting in the miles and laps, even when it’s [finally!] hot, like this week! Although I have to say that Brian’s ocean swims, even for 1200m+, seem like a much smarter idea than my 18-mile runs when it’s 95 and humid.
