- I've become a member of the Sandy Hookers Tri Club and can't wait to volunteer and participate in some local events in Long Branch!
- I'm super excited to see Split Second Racing will be hosting the Woodstock Triathlon Festival in May 2013. They'll have both half and olympic distances and I would expect the course to be both beautiful and challenging!! Registration opens this month so I would recommend checking it out.
- The Instead Softcup product will be my life saver for the 2013 race season. This past year during the Long Branch Half Marathon, I had to worry about jumping into a porta potty 10 min before the race and then had my boyfriend waiting at the finish line to hand me a fresh tampon. No thank you. After practicing during my light days last month, this time around I tried it on my "heavier days." It got me through a full day of work (and I'm a collegiate strength coach so I'm constantly on the move) during which I snuck in a 45 min lift, some interval running, and a short 30 min recovery swim. Clutch. Very clutch. Even though I received my product for free, I will definitely be a future customer and the above opinion is 100% mine. Thank you folks for making my life easier!
- Registration has opened for Timberman 70.3 Aug 18, 2013 (only $199 until 11/7!) and I will be there. Seriously, every time I sign up for a race I get that giddy feeling. This will be my 1st Ironman brand race and I guess you can say there is no better way to celebrate my 27th birthday (4th year straight that I'm celebrating my birthday by treating myself to a race...I swear it's addicting).
Anyway, enough for now from me. Off to enjoy a run in this cool, crisp weather. To those of you also affected by Sandy, I'll be keeping you in my prayers.
