I heart my team
The second major happening was courtesy of neighbor and fellow TNTer Kim. Unknown to me until the other night Kim is actually arranging a cheering squad for the Pigman ½ Ironman in Aug. Somehow she’s convinced people from the team to drive down to IA and cheer on SafetyBob and myself. This is freaking huge and was such a surprise. I’m sure I’ll say it may more times, but this is pretty incredible Kim and you have my deepest thanks!
Last night was a moderate run with the TNT crew. The team kept up a nice pace to finish the 6.5 mile run. My run ended up being a little bit longer with all the catch-ups I did to make sure we were all on the right path and we weren’t missing anyone. My legs felt pretty strong and responded well after the long weekend with no running. Tonight we have a mock race, but I’ll probably just do the swim and maybe a bit of the bike. I decided to do a little sprint race this weekend in prep for Lifetime. Since I didn’t get to swim in Philly I wanted to put it all together in an actual race before next weekend. So I’ll take it somewhat easy tonight with the sprint only a couple of days away. There are a large number of TNT peeps doing the sprint this weekend so it should be a lot of fun.
Well that’s about all that I’ve got, but before I’m done below are a few more pictures from Philly. Kim’s parents were at the race and took some nice pics. I’ll put up the link once Shadoweyes puts them in a gallery for public viewing. Have a good one…
