Training Tuesday: It Begins Again

I'm still basking in the afterglow of my first triathlon on Sunday. The photos were posted today and I'm looking pretty bad ass at the finish line.

While I had a good race, I'm hearing that not every participant left happy. I read online that there were participant medals for all finishers, but they were nowhere to be found onsite. Plus, some of the later waves didn't get an accurate swim time because the timing mat lost power. The race organizers are making medals available for pick up this week, but I feel bad for people who might have made this their only triathlon and trained for a long time for this. It's a huge accomplishment, and I hope everyone gets their medals! It's the 27th year of the tri, but I think they have a few things to work out before next year.

In the meantime, I'm ready for the next challenge. Rachael and I are training for the Fox Valley Marathon, which will take us all summer. I picked up on the second week of Hal Higdon's Novice 2 marathon plan and will follow that to the bitter end. Yesterday, I rested, today, I ran.

In three months, I will conquer the marathon.

I love the black and white photo your friend took of you. Although, if you had that much energy at the finish line...

You're going to rock marathon training for sure.
