All Triathlon, All the Time

Spirit of the Marathon Movie »« Ironman Frankfurt and Roth

2008 Baby!

I am still working on my goals for ’08, but as you probably know Ironman Arizona is the big dog A race. I had thought of doing the lottery for Escape from Alcatraz, but I think the cost dissuaded me for this year. As of today I am thinking of also trying to run a fast half-marathon, so I don’t know when that will happen. The other triathlons that I am looking at:

  • Liberty Half-Iron in early June (I like watching Minneman so even though it is a classic I’d rather watch).
  • Hy-Vee: last year Aaron and I thought of camping, I think it’d be fun to do the race and then watch the pros.
  • Lake Waconia (probably my favorite race, I got 3rd last year in my AG and would like to move up).
  • Lifetime: oh yes, Aaron and I are thinking of re-creating ironwar for it, though I’d like to get confirmation that we won’t start till after the pros race since I will be documenting that again.
  • Heart of the Lakes: another great classic, I’d like to also move up from my 3rd AG podium last year.
  • I am tinkering with the thought of going back to Racine to try to set a Half-IM pr (right now 4:46 at Steelhead). Though I will probably be tri-d ot by then so who knows if I will do Racine…

Well that is the wrap-up for now. A few races, with arizona being the first and most important race for me. I actually plan on doing “12 weeks will IM AZ” video blogging so stay on the lookout for that. *if you are looking for links to races above, go to my race links page.
