Disclaimer: I am taking all kinds of meds for this month-long cough and now ear issues. These include steroids, which make me ramble even more than usual. (I know, is this really possible?). The good news is my house is tidy, laundry is done....I'm like a Mom on speed! (Kids- this is not condoning "juicing". Steroids are bad...but if I'm going be sick and on meds at least the house is clean!)
The Good News: I ran/walked 4.5 miles on the treadmill yesterday. It felt awesome! It was mostly running, with some walking in there (trying to build myself up and not push it). Of course my heart rate was definitely higher than normal but I figure my body has been through a lot. It felt good to sweat that hard-earned, I'm pushing myself kind of sweat.
Team Trakkers 2011: Lots of cool happenings for our team. The Team Trakkers Elite have a video out introducing themselves. It is fun to get to know our pro teammates. You can check it out here.
One of the most exciting new additions to the Trakkers Elite team is Kathleen Calkins. Kathleen was one of our age group teammates last year when she earned her Professional Triathlete status. She raced as a pro at Rev3 Cedar Point. Her husband Shane was super supportive, cheering on Kathleen and the rest of us during the race. I also met her son, who is the same age as mine and also has a total obsession with firefighters. The boys have become cross-country pen pals. I can't wait to follow Kathleen's journey and the rest of the Team Trakkers Elite.
Rev 3 on Blog Talk Radio: Rev3 is resuming the Blog Talk Radio shows this year. These were a blast last year. You can listen along to the show, and participate in the online chat. It is great to hear from the pros and hear specifics about the Rev3 races. Click here to listen. The show is on this Wednesday at 8pm Eastern. I will be visiting with family but hoping I can make it online!
