PiF 500 Mile Update
What is PiF 500?? Check it out on Robin’s blog!
So as I stated in this post, I have resigned myself to the fact that running 500 miles (much less 650 which was my original goal) this year is not going to happen. I assessed my running and what I felt like I would be capable of doing and it is not going to equal 500 miles. The ultimate goal is staying injury free.
However, I am all about making things work. Therefore, I have decided to count my walking miles. Here’s the thing…my walking is a direct result of my injury and a large part of my recovery. Why not count the miles, right?? Miles are miles…and the plus side is, I think it will help me to go out for walks more than I have been lately. And that makes me totally confident that hitting 500 is possible!
Race Calendar Update
I am so excited to be back racing again after months of being on the DL 🙂 I have a jammed packed summer of racing (or participating, I should say!) and I cannot wait for the fun to begin! Here’ is where I will be:
July 11- Philly Women’s Tri Fairmont Park, PA
July 17- 20 in 24 Relay Fairmont Park, PA (relay with co-workers)
July 25- NJ State Olympic Tri Mercer, NJ (my FIRST Olympic!)
August 1- Belmar Sprint Tri Belmar, NJ
August 8- Steelman Olympic Tri, Quakertown, PA (relay with teammates)
August 21- Wildwood Sprint Tri Wildwood, NJ
August 28- Medford Lakes Sprint Tri Medford Lakes, NJ
I know it seems like a lot, and it is in comparison to last year…but all in all, it’s not that much when you consider two of the races are relays. Furthermore, four of these are comped races, given to me for all the volunteer work I do and I don’t want to pass them up!
If you are going to be racing/spectating any of the above, please let me know! I would love to meet you 🙂
