I cannot believe that one month has already passed! Where did it go? Things have been crazy with moving into the new house and all the travel, but I have still been making progress in both the training and fund raising.
I have raised $300 which is a good start still having 11 months to go, but I still have a ways to go. I have been working with a close friend to help put together a fund raiser and silent auction, more details to come on that one.
Its only 20 days until the Nation’s Triathlon and things are coming together for it. I feel strong with the bike and run part of it. The swim is what I am a little nervous about. In one of my pool sessions it occurred to me the only swimming I have done over the past five years has been when I have come out of my boat. Swimming for distance is a WAY different thing and more tiring. At least I have identified this weakness early with a lot of time to work on it.
Once the Nation’s Tri is over, I am going to have to shift gears and focus my sights on the Marine Corps Marathon which is the end of October. I hope to see you at some of the upcoming events and really appreciate all of your support as I am moving forward. Please do not forget to help me get to the Lake Placid IronMan and donate to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.
