To quote Britney Spears, one of the great bards of our time (not!)…well, Kerry and I have signed up for another triathlon, Lavaman, in Kona Hawaii, on March 29th, 2009. It’s an olympic distance race again (swim 1.5km, bike 40km, run 10km) and the course is partly on the Ironman World Championship course, which should be a great experience since I’m toying with the idea of doing an Ironman triathlon in 2010 (that’s about 4 times the distances of an olympic event).
We’re raising funds again for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) through Team In Training and this season we have also volunteered as staff to help everyone else achieve their dreams. We actually started training back in November and training through the winter is a bit different from training during the summer, not nearly as enjoyable. As you can see from the photo, riding in the rain is just one of the many pleasures.
Admittedly we’ve been a bit lax on the training so far, but, with the new year we’ll have to kick things up a notch as we have less than 3 months until race day!
I’ll keep everyone posted of my progress and if you’d like to make a donation to help us reach our $5,880 goal that would be very much appreciated, this time Kerry and I are fundraising together. You can donate via our fundraising page:
Happy New Year everyone and best wishes for 2009.
