70.3: What did I get myself into

70.3 miles, some water, a bike and a pair of shoes. I will of course need a few more things but I can worry about my packing list later. This September I will be going 70.3 miles in just one race. 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run.....yikes!!! I still can't believe I signed myself up for this but I'm really excited for the challenge. My blog will following my training and preparation so if you don't want to read about swimming, biking, running or living healthy I understand. I am open to advice and encouragement since this will be my first major race 

A few weeks ago Kathy and I finished the St. Anthony's Olympic distance triathlon and it felt great! Kathy improved a lot since last year and I found out that I like triathlons a lot! It's a unique physical and mental challenge that really gets me excited about working out. When i find something that takes working out from a chore to a privilage I know I should stick wiith it for a while, so I'm doing 70.3. I found a training program that I like and makes sense with my schedule. I'm sure there will be weeks when I don't follow it exactly but nobody's perfect so I'm just going to do the best that I can. 

September 28th I will be swimming, biking and running in Augusta, Georgia in the Half Ironman....and I can't wait!
