You can stop holding your breath: I've decided on the races I plan to do this year! It's been a long few months of waffling over which races to do and at which distances ... and whether, for that matter, I wanted to race at all! (Late-season snowfall has a way of making one want to crawl into a warm hole and never do cardio again.)
I also struggled with wanting to make sure my family has a great summer, without having to worry about me getting in a 3-hour bike ride every weekend. Summer in Bend is so incredible, and I wasn't sure I wanted to spend every weekend day either exercising or recovering from exercise.
Then I wised up and realized that training and racing fill me with pride and confidence, which help make me a good mom. I could list 100 other ways triathlon has made me better, but I'll leave that for another post.
Now, the list (subject to change):
May 21 - Pole Pedal Paddle (alpine skiing leg)
June 25 - Pacific Crest Olympic Triathlon
July 16 - Deschutes Dash Olympic Triathlon
Aug 20 - RAT Race Sprint Triathlon
Sept 10 - Best in the West Half Ironman (WHAAATTT???)
