Did you miss these?

Awwww yeah. It’s almost that time again! I woke up to this pretty little email yesterday:

Ok, almost time to stop slacking off.  Almost time to pick up where I ended in August.  Almost time to refocus and get back into training mode. It’s real again. (Seriously – they charged my credit card for the entry fee yesterday.  If that doesn’t slap you in the face, make it real and force you to feel that triathlete beast mode power slowly return, then maybe nothing will!)  I’ll officially get back into the pool in January, and the rest will follow shortly after.

So what have I been up to since the last triathlon, you ask?  Oh, you know, just taking it easy.

10 miles here…

A half marathon there…

A few epic bike rides…

Lots of Muay Thai…

And some hiking adventures to unknown corners of the world (ie: Vermont) 😉

Since I got into the triathlon through the lottery, I’m in – I don’t have to go through a charity like I did last year to get entry.  But that would be selfish, right? That would be a waste of doing what I can to help better the life of someone in need.  And so I am going to team up with Team in Training again and, just like before, raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Last year I raised over $6,500 and am hoping to do the same in 2015.  Together, my TNT triathlon team raised over $1 million for LLS and had an amazing time doing it.  Let’s see what 2015 has in store.

Stay tuned – the ride is just beginning.
