This year seems to be flying by. I can’t believe its already the end of March. Hopefully that means that there is warmer weather just around the corner…I’m getting tired of running in the 30’s. Now that Rugby is getting back to it’s normal practice schedule, hopefully I can stay on top of this blog.
1 – This summer I am going to Alaska to run in the Mayors midnight Sun half marathon. My Friends Chelsea and Lauren are doing up as well. At this point we have a loose agenda, but we are still looking to book things. If you have any suggestions in the Anchorage, Kodiak, Denali area please feel free to let me know. I’m really pushing for a Halibut fishing trip, though my travel companions do not know this yet. After all Who does not love fresh seafood.
2 – I’m looking to become a half fanatic this summer. After I complete Anchorage I will qualify for Neptune, but if I can find another around the end of May, I will be able to jump up to Saturn (I will have PA, WV, and Alaska in 7 weeks). I should be able to find one in Ohio in that timeframe. I just need to choose a race.
3 – Rugby starts this weekend with a warmup tournament in West Virginia. Not sure I am really ready for the season to start up, but its here. Two league matches after Easter and them playoffs. The season will be over before I know it though.
4 – This summer I really need to get some work done on my backyard. Even if i don’t get the patio finished, I need to get a retaining wall built and make the area more useable. My new neighbors who moved in back in December, have been working overtime getting their yard ready. I feel like i need to accomplish something in the backyard this summer. Hopefully you will see some pictures of the progress as soon as the weather warms up.
5 – I am strongly considering signing up and training for the Pittsburgh Triathlon in August. I have never done one, and really don’t know where to start training for it. I would not do the international, but the sprint. It would only be a 600M swim, a 20K bike, and a 5K run. I still have some time to decide, but it I am very tempted to sign up at this point.
