3 miles / 7:47 pace (8:09, 7:37, 7:36)
Yeah, I ran this a LOT faster than I should have. I wanted to see how much fitness I had lost over the last few months. Unfortunately, it is more than I anticipated - but just like I love the challenge of trying to figure out what the hell T-Pain is saying, I love the challenge of regaining fitness.
This week I am not headed to my friend Atlanta, or even to glorious San Diego. Instead, I am headed to Orange County W-F. Not LA mind you.... Orange County. I was corrected on this just the other day. While I am nearly certain that I'll run into Rachel Bilson (See right), if for some reason she is on a yacht this week, just like every other business travel trip, I am certain it will be a huge sausage fest. It could always be worse. My buddy Nick is at the Microsoft Professional Developers Conference. When he gets home he is likely going to need two showers to wash off all of the nerd smell.
Finally, I have completely forgot to announce (to all of my triathlon readers) that I am going to watch the IronMan Arizona race this weekend. My plan is to park a few miles away from the main transition area and bike in to avoid most of the traffic. I will have my camera in tote, tourist style, and will have all sorts of pictures and stories to report.
The swim is 2 laps around a man made lake near Arizona State University, the bike goes 30 miles into a local Indian reservation (twice), and the marathon loops around the lake 3 times. So, I think that I am going to be centered around the lake. If anything, I'll get to see some wet suit strippers. Be sure that I'll make all sorts of off color comments about THAT activity.
