2 Down…4 To Go

Oh hey guys…guess what? It’s May which means 2 months of Ironman training in the books and only 4 more to go.

Also…in bigger news, I’m signed up for the Columbia Triathlon on May 21 (if I already mentioned this I’m sorry…been a crazy week). I’m pretty stoked (and nervous) about doing my first Olympic distance, but I have so many other fitness friends participating (including ASA) so it’s going to be a great race. Also, Jonathan will be here visiting so excited for him to meet more of the fitness community here including the RipIt Team.

In case you’re wondering…the wetsuit fits!! I tried on my new blueseventy wetsuit and it fits perfectly. Second time is a charm.

AND…..PASSED my AFAA exam so I am group fitness certified!!!!

I ended my week at Happy Hour at Barcocina in Fells with the Beachfit crew to celebrate Beachfit’s 3rd Birthday!!! Red wine and tacos…yes please!!!IMG_8258

Come check out the new studio at Beachfit and all of the renovations that took place over the past week. Awesome new classes that will challenge you and help you stay on track as we head into summer. I teach TRX at 5pm on Thursdays…you in?

  Saturday: Brick (32.36 Mile Bike + 2.67 Mile Run)

I went to Friendship Park and did the BWI loop for the first time. I did 3 loops (11ish miles each) and then got in a 20 minute run.

Loaded the bike back up and headed home to get ready for a trip to NYC with Marie.

Sunday: 6.50 Mile Run

Had a great time getting the miles in while watching the Shape Women’s Half Marathon in Central Park. Ran all over to catch Marie on the course and to cheer her on. More to come on my weekend in the Big Apple and the race day adventures.
