So it is that time of year again. Time to put together the old race schedule for 2014!! This year I would like to do a couple of road races and a bunch of Tri’s and maybe some Du’s, but this year I am going to try and do my multisport races locally. I traveled a lot last year all over the country and into London with my bike and as much fun as it was, I prefer to try and stay locally this year, ie driving to my races within a 5 hour distance. So because of this, I have decided to add Ironman Eagleman 70.3 to my list of early season races which I am very excited about. After Ironman Miami 70.3, I fell in love with the distance and want to continue doing them. So for 2014 I have 2 70.3’s on the schedule, as of right now 1 Oly and a bunch of Sprints. I don’t think I will be doing Nationals again this year, but that may be a game-time decision we will see but as of right now the ones I will be flying to will be Chicago and Augusta. I will most likely throw in a couple more race as I figure out my schedule but for right now, I have 10 races for sure I am doing. Since Ironman Miami, I have been enjoying my off-season immensely. I have been running pretty much every other day, giving my back a break after putting it through hell in the saddle and just enjoying having time off which I didn’t get to do last year. I have been acquiring sponsors and ambassadorships while also finishing up my semester of grad school. SO if there is anything I can suggest to other triathletes and road racers out there, ENJOY YOUR OFF-SEASON. It will come and go before you know it and I have just enjoyed being able to relax and not focus on training. Now that the year is coming to an end I will say 2013 started off horribly but ended pretty fantastic. I am however looking forward to 2014 very much. Finishing grad school and starting another racing season. So enjoy the last few days of 2013, I will as I am enjoying the warm weather in sunny Florida.
