And as I look at 2014, there really aren't too many races than are jumping out at me. I have found out that I really enjoy the longer courses more than the Sprint races. I plan on doing the Memphis in May Olympic race, a HIM and the Memphis Marathon. I need a good marathon so I can whoop Brad when we go head to head at the Redman Full in 2015. I am not saying these are the only races I will be doing, but these are the only definite ones.
I am sort of running into an issue planning which HIM I want to do. For the last couple of years, my bigger race has always landed around mine or my sons Bday's. I am 9/7, he is 9/22. I have always hated being away form the kids or dragging them from home on his Bday so I can race, but he swears he likes it, so this year I wanted to make sure we were home around those dates, but my options are limited. Here are the three HIM I am considering:
1. Atomic Man Triathlon- The race is about three hours away and is a HIM distance. It is in late Aug, so it would work. Only thing about it is their are some hills on the bike, and after Branson 70.3, I swore off hills.
|Plus it has a cool name!!!|
2. Goosepond Half Triathlon- This is down in A L A B A M A! The race is scheduled for Sept 7, my Bday. I have heard a lot of good things about this course, so we will see.
3. Redman Half- Now Brad, or as I will refer to him going forward as B-rad, is looking at doing the half so he can learn the course for our big showdown in 2015. The half would be fun, but it is on Jake's Bday Sept 22. So that is a long shot.
