where I'm racing in 2011

So now that it is 2011 (it's almost halfway through January already!) - I feel that the training season has officially begun. Especially since my weekend training hours have been creeping up shooting upwards like the Tower of Terror. (It unofficially began in Nov. 1st when I was forced to get off my ass and back onto my bike). What's the most fun thing to do early in the season? Plan races! Here is my alleged schedule. (Pending Coach Mary's approval, of course. But Coach Mary NEVER says no to me! Ok, she said no once. Big deal.) Note: only 4 triathlons this year. :( But 2 of those triathlons make up for the lack of others. Also, zero half-Ironmans. That makes me really, really sad. I loved the 2010 Tinman/Lake Placid combo but sadly, I could not find a half-IM that was within a reasonable driving distance at the end of May, and I'm not even going to TRY to fit one in between the 2 Ironmans.

Johnny's Runnin' of the Green - mid-March - 5 mile road race

Spring Forward Distance Run - end of March - 15k road race that is hilly as shit

Flower City Challenge - May 1 - local half-marathon

Keuka Lake Triathlon - June 5 - olympic distance tri

Ironman Coeur D'Alene - June 26

Cayuga Lake Triathlon - Aug 7 - olympic? sprint? who knows

Ironman Wisconsin - Sept 11


I am set for Coeur D'Alene. My flights are booked, my hotel is booked, I have transportation to and from the Spokane airport, and I have like 20 members of QT2 that are going to be there to keep an eye on me.

Wisconsin is still completely unorganized.. but it's months away! Plus, I am driving to that race so there are no airlines, rental cars, or bike bags involved.

This is the least amount of races I have done since 2007. It's gonna be weird!


  1. See you at CDA and Wisconsin!!! pretty sure I am going to volunteer in the changing room in Wisconsin and maybe again as a finish catcher! It's kind of our local race so I've got lots of peeps doing it!

  2. Well, I am not doing any of these, dont have to worry about you posting that you chicked me at the race, like I was standing still

  3. I hear ya on the low race volume. I am only doing 3 so far...

  4. I am psyched for your season. I feel like I have less on my schedule this year as well.

  5. IMWI meetup??? :) Promise not to chick me too bad???

  6. DEFINITELY an IMWI meetup.. I am going solo, so friends will be good :)


I love creepy blog stalker friends! Don't be afraid to leave me a comment!
