Update: Training is Winding Down-ish..

   So it's been quite awhile since I have been able to post and I apologize to all my readers who have been anxiously awaiting a new post!  What can I say?  I've been busy!  Not only do I have my (at least) 40 hr work week, but training takes a lot of time.  But I certainly wouldn't change the it for anything! 
   The crazy training is on the downward climb!  Pretty weird to think of, since it has been a part of my life since I don't know, March? April?  I mean I workout all the time, with or without "official training", but it isn't quite the same! 
   On a whim, I registered for the Chicago Triathlon, International distance aka Olympic, the last possible day to register!  Now up until this point I have only done the Sprint distance and have only done one triathlon...EEK! Somehow the triathlon I did (Naperville Women's Triathlon) seems so minor compared to the Chicago Triathlon.  I feel like I am going to "play with the big kids"!  The Open water swim in Lake Michigan is intimidating as well as the bike, especially since I am hesitant since wiping out.  But I have to say I am proud of myself for taking the next step and registering for it! 
   I know that I couldn't do any of these triathlons without the support of my family, friends and my VCS Triteam!  They all have supported and encouraged me in ways I never dreamed possible.  Every single person on my tri-team is such a HUGE inspiration for me!

Good Luck to Everyone competing in any race in the next few weeks!  I hope to update after a few of mine coming up! Stay Tuned!
