Off and running!! Last weekend I kicked off my racing season with a local 5k. With a 3.5 hr bike, a swim and a large helping of food at the Spaghetti Factory the day before, it really was more of a tempo than a race but regardless it is sure nice to know that my first race of the season is behind me.

Getting out there, going through per-race warm-ups and toeing the line has amped me up for my upcoming A races. After a super short 2014 race season I am looking forward to a packed season, with at least one race a month, through XC Club Nationals in December.  While most of my season is composed of my race favorites – Vineman 70.3, Challenge Rancho Cordova and Cross Country in Golden Gate Park and I am contemplating throwing in a newbie or 2 and maybe even a full distance triathlon. I will admit that the full distance race is only penciled in at this point; I reserve the right to change my mind. 🙂

Most of all I am looking forward to racing with the some great Freeplay girls this season!
