>Monday’s Tidbits

>Some random stuff…

  • My triathlon season is over, but not my 2010 season.  This coming weekend starts 1/2 marathon season!  I’ll be competing in the Marine Corps half marathon this Saturday in Jacksonville.  Looking forward to rocking the Trakkers’ green!
  • Completed a long run of 12 miles on Saturday morning.  Like many, I am SO OVER the heat and humidity.  I lost > 5 pounds from sweat during my run.  I tried to re-hydrate all day and night, but it was Sunday before I felt like I was back to normal. 
  • Check out the video below.  A friend posted this on Facebook today – the guy in the video is racing IMFL, and raising money for a pregnancy center in eastern North Carolina.  He’s on a quest to raise $70,000…a quarter at a time.  He’s asking for donations of $0.25 per mile he completes ($35) from 2000 people.  Once you review the video, won’t you consider donating?
  • One of the coolest things this year is that I’ve been a member of Team Trakkers.  I’ve been very honored to represent this great company.  If you’d like to be a part of Team Trakkers in 2011, check out this link to find an application.
  • I’ve been thinking recently about our sport and the relative safety of participation.  More to come on this later on this week…
  • Working on two really great “Ten Questions With…” interviews.  One with a male professional triathlete who just happened to do really well at this past weekend’s USAT Elite Championships, and another with a wonderful sports nutrition company.  Look for these over the next couple of weeks.
  • Starting to think about my 2011 race calendar.  Some of the things I’ve got penciled in…What’s on your list for 2011?  (C’mon…you know you’re already thinking about 2011…)

  1. >Cedar Point!! Make a family trip out of it. The kids will love the rides and I know an old friend who'd love to see you guys. 😉

  2. >IM TX. That's it for me. No more 3 IMs in a year. I'm too old. Now Arnie, he is wanting to swim the English Channel (really) and I know he can but he wants me to go to (trying to convince him that is definitely not a team sport).Go to Cedar Point. Great rides (or that's what I remember from 45 years ago)
