I’m in the thick of training for Ironman Louisville, and life has been getting busy. It’s been all I can do to keep up with work, training, my marriage, and sometimes seeing friends. I felt a bit bad that it took me over a week to see one of my best friend’s new baby, but he’s so cute! Hopefully he’s still a cutie pie after August 24.
The training that’s ramped up is going to stay that way until early August. Then we head into taper mode.
I realized that my biggest Ironman race simulation workout is going to be the same weekend as the Zooma Chicago Half Marathon. I love the Zooma spirit, and have been super excited to share in the love of their celebrating women and bringing ladies together to cheer each other on in the great sport of running.
I’m sad to have come to the decision that I should focus on the Ironman training that weekend, and decline running the Zooma Half Marathon. Instead, I’ll be swimming 2.4 miles, biking 100 miles, and running whatever I can for an hour after that. There’s a lot of logistics that go into planning that workout, and it’s best if I stick with my training group for that key workout day.
So that means that I have an entry into the Zooma Chicago race for a lucky reader! I would love it if whoever wins is willing to share their Zooma story on my blog after the race.

I will be joining the wonderful ladies of Zooma on the 10 mile training run tomorrow morning at Universal Sole. Join us if you’re interested!
