New Season - New Changes

So it's time to start up for 2009. I've been trying to stay in somewhat reasonable shape, but it's been tough to stay motivated AND find the time (even more difficult when I am traveling for work so much - in fact. I put 1300 miles in my last trip)!

I'm circling 2, maybe three events this year. It'll be tough because I still have 2 more classes to go - and they start today, just in time for spring when I want to get out of the house!

1. KCCC Tri - This is always on my list. It's nice and short (1/3 mile swim, 9 mile bike, 2.5 mile run) and I think I can do really well this year. Just got to get that running thing down.

2. X-Terra - I've always wanted to do one of these. Hopefully this year in Arkansas, but maybe not. It's off-road all the way - swim in a lake, mountain bike, and trail run. I have a feeling I will love this.

3. KC Olympic Tri - it's new this year, but with all the school and travel, we'll see if I can make it.

Other than that, not much else. I need to get school done so I can be finally finished. Sept 2005 seems like so long ago!

Oh, and the changes? New bike upgrades! Look for pictures of Version 2.0 of the world's only Tomac Tri bike soon!
