Obviously a lot has happened, and I'm not going to even try to cover it. Suffice to say that I slowed down the training and racing. I didn't completely stop, but I'm less than half of my training hours for the year.
Two races were on my schedule this year and both are behind me. The Weekend Warrior Marathon in Armada in May, and Steelhead 70.3 last weekend. The marathon went bad, and Steelhead went good.
My marathon time was just under 4 hours. After a 3:34 three years ago that stung. Plus I threw up at the finish. A first time for me.
Steelhead went better than expected given my travel and work commitments. I almost didn't make it back from LA in time for the race.
Somehow I managed to PR the HIM distance by 11 minutes. All bike time. Luck was on my side as I flatted 1/4 mile before T2 and rolled in on the rim.
I'll try to post more than once a year. ;-)
