World Triathlon Corp. will stage its first half-Ironman distance race in New Jersey next September, two years after canceling the New York City Ironman after one edition because of logistical problems.
The 70.3-mile (113-kilometer) race -- the first Ironman-branded triathlon held entirely in the U.S.’s most densely populated state -- will be held at Mercer County
So this is a simple little blog post about my Sunday long run and the joys of it. That and a few hardships.
Let me begin at the beginning and when I get to the end, I’ll stop.
Last year, as I was training for Goofy, I went for a long run around my home in North Carolina. It was a nice day, not too hot, not too cold.
Out of all of my team members, I have a feeling I run in the snow the most. That is not to say that other members don't, but I am willing to wager they haven't run in deep snow yet.
I am not the kind of runner who will choose the
dread treadmill over running outside. I love the crunch of snow and the smell of snow and the dense sound of snow.
3 years ago I started off as the little girl who said no more than yes and played it safe with most life decisions...or made poor choices out of fear. The one day I woke up and decided to change my life. And change it I did!
I went to University to prove to myself that I was smart, that I could learn and to change the direction of my career.
