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!!
