It has been quite the hectic two weeks since the last post. I celebrated my 48th birthday on the 13th of this month, to limited fanfare, except for a nice 20 mile trail run at Umstead park. Training has been going well, we have had a little relief from the oppressive heat that plagued us earlier in the month.Ive been extremely busy with my "real" job, plus teaching spin class 2-3 times per week, and trying to fit in at least five runs per week on top of that!
Last weekend I busted out the bike to do a leg of our local triathlon. It was a sprint distance of 11.4 miles and I wound up averaging 19.2 miles an hour.
I have not stopped to contemplate what my reaction will be once we get her moved in, get back in the car and head home. True to my Irish heritage, I am a classic weeper. I pray I don't encounter any form of bagpipe music on the two hour drive home, for I might lose it all together.
May have to pack some tissues in the old Nathan Hydro vest, just in case...........
