I’m pretty excited to share my duathlon experience, which I’ve been referring to in my head as “2Chainz,” you’ll see why soon.
Now that I’m back in the running game, I’ve signed up for a few races to close out 2015. I asked Raechel (my physical therapist) if I could run a half marathon in December. She said no. It’s really nice to have someone smarter than me to make these decisions.
I’m going to keep slowly building a base and hopefully run a longer race some time early next year.
Based on that plan, I signed up for a bunch of shorter races to close out 2015. Wanna talk about it? Wanna run them with me?
Check ’em out:
I spent most of Saturday horizontal on the couch nursing a cold. Sunday morning, amped on Mucinex, I took my bike (and Matthew) to Central Park to ride two loops of the park for the first time ever.
It’s a strange activity for someone who spent most of the weekend trying to take it easy. But I’m training for something. What? Yup! I haven’t mentioned it here because I’m a little intimidated by it.
This past Saturday, I ran in my first race in nearly a year. (Technically I participated a Turkey Trot with my family last Thanksgiving, but I didn’t race it.)
Five friends signed up for the Hamptons Half Marathon and I registered for the accompanying 5K. Two lovely ladies joined us for the weekend and came out to cheer, so our group made eight in East Hampton.
