The Countdown for Santa Rosa is on!
Santa Rosa is only a hop-skip-and-a-jump from my little spot here on the edge of the world. I love Northern California. This is a newer race for Ironman. There is also a full Ironman which I tentatively have on my wishlist. The idea of doing a race that does not involve me having to ship my bike always has my interest. When Jake suggested doing this as a relay I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to check this area out for a future Wonder Wagon Adventure.
The race is Mother's Day weekend. What better way to celebrate Mother's Day! Last year I did a triathlon for Mother's Day~Dunes Triathlon at Honeyman State Park. Mr. W is going to be at a conference that week. I am becoming familiar with doing races solo~but not, as I am doing a relay! As always it's going to be an adventure. Out of the three disciplines of triathlon, running is my favorite. I have a time goal for this race. Reading the race guide, the run is a shaded, flat face 2-loop course. I am using Train Like a Mother half marathon, finish it plan. I am going to weave in an olympic triathlon plan~for swim and bike workouts. My friend Miranda and I have been trail running once a week for the past month so my endurance is slowly building. I love having a training plan it makes my life so much easier. I like structure and predictability.
