Three Things Thursday

1.  I’m in week 3 of Ironman Canada training and last night I had my longest swim in more than 2 years. 2 YEARS!!!

I’ll tell you how I feel about that — WOOT! BAM! POW! POP! WHIZ! TAKE THAT! HELL YA! *expletive in my mind right here*

Thank you Jess for joining me for this awesome workout!

2.  Throwback Thursday (Circa 2006) — My very first marathon that started all this craziness and fun! The California International Marathon.

What’s funny about this picture is I’m reminded that I thought it was a good idea to take a Chocolate Outrage Espresso Love GU every 1/2 hour I was running.  So not a good idea.  EVER.  Needless to say, I haven’t touched that flavor of GU since.

3.  Every bit of my training is dedicated this week to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy.  Every day, I have pulled up the photos of those lives that were lost that day and think about them, their families, and I focus my attention on making my training spectacular — for them.  I thank my friends at #FURTHERFASTERFOREVER who had this idea! So far, I’m 23 miles in – and plan to triple that! Click on the photo below to read my blog post about this awesome cause! It’s not too late to sign up!!

  1. I’m almost 20 miles in on 26 miles for 26 lives. You’re a Rockstar in my book for tripling that! Congrats on your longest swim…I have a feeling you’ll be shattering that one soon too.

  2. There is nothing like your first marathon to light the endurance fire!!! I love the throw back picture : ) I am defintiely over Gu…I prefer the CLIFF blocks but even those are getting hard to take. I love Lara bars, Picky Bars and Bonk Breakers!
