Ironman inspired me, what can I say...yesterday, Bruce and I had a "date" in our garage, where we fixed up my old college bike. We dusted off the cobwebs (which it really had, how sad is that) and put it in working order. I purchased a helmet and a set of lights, and I'll all ready to take it on its maiden voyage! The plan is to start riding, look to training for a sprint triathlon next year, and if I take to it, invest in a nice road bike...and after that, who knows??? Short term, I've still got plenty of running to do, though. Did a slower-paced six miles last night, and am gearing up to run Fox Cities Half Marathon on Sunday. The half isn't really going to be "raced" as such - I'm due for a 14 mile training run this weekend, so it seemed like the perfect idea. Run about the right amount of miles, with other people and in a new venue, great way to combat boredom. And I get a shirt and bonus bling at the end!
