I heart the Internet

Why do I heart the internet?

Other then keeping in close cahoots with all of you lovely beings, where else can you find a list of all the triathalons being raced in the US and a list of all the century bike rides to boot in under 5 secs?

BTW, I'm going to compete in my first tri this July in Norwalk, CT. I have another scheduled in September in Sandy Hook, NJ and I think I'll be doing a century ride sometime in the next few months or so as well.

In other news, I ran my first two races post-marathon last week. The first, on Mother's Day, was a slow one for me. I missed the start by about 5 minutes, but no worries, I just ended up behind a bunch of walkers which probably added a couple of minutes to my time. The second 5K was much faster. Ran it at just under a 9 minute pace. It's amazing how long it takes the body to recoup from a marathon.

Ah...I love being kick-ass fit. LOL.

One last thing...the NYC Marathon lottery will be held in just a few short weeks. Keep those fingers and toes crossed for me. I'm really hoping to get a slot this year.
