This year one of my goals was to pick HARD races.  Races that would challenge me in a different way.  IMTX did not disappoint.  Up until race day there was not a whole lot of certainty in the course…They changed the bike and shortened it, and then on Thursday before the race they announced that …

Somehow these past few months have escaped me.  We went from the crazy holiday season, winter swimming and to all things winter. November and December were extremely mild…so much so I was able to ride my bike outside every month.  I think I was out the day after Christmas.  We did not get enough snow …

My break from training was short this year and we are back into training mode.  This is the first year I have done a really regimented off season.  In years past, I would take a break for a couple of months and swim, bike, run on my own as I felt.  I LOVED it…I did …
