Well boys and girls I’ve done it now. There’s no turning back and no bailing out unless I don’t mind throwing money away.
I told you all a few weeks ago I was going to sign up for the Olympic Triathlon in July. Well that’s official as I signed up and paid this morning. BUT that’s not all! Not only did I sign up for the OLY but I also signed up for a Near-Oly. It’s actually the Barry’s Bay Triathlon but there distances are a bit off an Olympic distance tri. This one is 2 weeks before the OLY. BUT that’s not all either! Just 20 minutes ago I signed up for the Canada Army Run Half Marathon in September.
I would think now that I have signed up for 4 races I actually have a “race schedule”?! I mean one race next week doesn’t seem like a schedule to me 🙂 I’m also contemplating signing up for a marathon which is in the evening on Sept.4.
I just can’t decide whether I want to go that long this year. I don’t know if I’d ever run a bunch of marathons like some folks but I think I want to do at least one to say I’ve done it. Here’s my schedule with the distances:
May 30,2010 @ 9:00am Half Marathon Ottawa Race Weekend
June 27,2010 @ 9:00am Barry’s Bay Triathlon~ 750m swim, 32km bike, 8km run
July 24,2010 @ 8:45am Graham Beasley Olympic Triathlon~ 1500m swim, 40km bike, 10km run
Sept. 19,2010 @ 9:00am Canada Army Run Half Marathon

I’ve been waiting to get my bib # for my HM next week and I haven’t seen it yet. Today I went looking rather than waiting for the e-mail and found it. I’ll be running with bib # 7207. My only other HM I was like 10135 or something. Not sure if the lower number is based on my previous time or signing up earlier.
In unrelated news:
I spared for a friend’s team in our men’s golf league. They have teams playing 2 different nights. I played pretty decent but nicest thing was after 2+ years I finally won the closest to the pin contest. For winning I was able to pick up a nice dri-fit golf shirt worth $40. Only cost me $15 to play so good price for a shirt 🙂 We also placed 3rd or 4th this week and combined with my own team last night tieing for first I’ll receive 2 more prizes next week. They just won’t be as nice as the golf shirt.
Question of the day: do you think I should sign up for the marathon in 15 weeks(Sept.4)?????
