My Triathon Date

A lot of you have asked if I have picked a Triathlon to do in 2006, so I have decided to post it. The first Triathlon I will be doing is around June 24th, which by the way is my 12th wedding anniversary. It used to be called the Reebok Women's Triathlon in Naperville, Illinois. I will be swimming .46 miles, biking 14.5 miles and running a 5k, which is 3.1 miles. If I am up to it I will be doing a second one around July 8th. It is the Danskin Women's Triathlon in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. For that one I will be swimming 1/2 mile, biking 15 and running a 5k. For all my Triathlete friends reading this, please let me know if you think that is enough time between the two races. I'm not sure that will be enough time for me to recover and get ready for the second one, but that is just the newbie in me. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

Later,
Melissa

Your first race is 6 months away. I bet, by the time the races roll around, you will be in the best shape of your life. I don't think you'll have any trouble doing both. However, I really don't know you are what your athletic abilities are. That will have to be answered by you. None the less, you're gonna rock both races. Especially if your enthusiasm persists. Keep it up girl, you're going to do great!
