Moving To AZ, There Will Be No Rev3, For Me
If you read my posts regularly you know that I’ve been planning and looking forward to running my first Half Revolution3 Triathlon this year. You may be wondering how I’m going to pull it off with our big adventure ahead.
I’m not going to pull it off. There will be no Half Revolution3 for me….this time around. I will admit, it pains me to type that.
After taking a few years off of running races due to my health this was supposed to be a decent race year for me. Or at least that’s what I had hoped. My first race of the year was supposed to be the Toledo Glass City Half Marathon. After several months of training I ended up with my first DNS due to an ankle issue.
As I eyed other races for summer I found myself having issues deciding on what would fit best into my Half Rev3 training schedule. I never did decide on a race schedule (maybe I somehow knew I wouldn’t be racing??) Instead, I set my eyes to my Rev3 training. I signed up for Rev3 Coaching, dealt with my freak out, and logged a decent amount of hours swimming, running, and biking.
I know to some it may seem like I’m throwing it all away and I’m sure some may even question my goal setting, planning, and execution. In my mind all of my hard work and time wasn’t all for naught. I believe no matter how big or small, every experience in our lives builds character and makes us stronger.
Running a Half Rev3 is a challenge I’d like to conquer, but it’s not my dream. Heading out west for adventure is my dream. I will definitely run a Revolution3 race in the future…and it will be sooner than later. For now I’m going to live my dream, continue training, running races/triathlons, and hope to pick up some more fun sports.
What helpful hints do you have for me as I head out AZ? Where should I run/train? What are your fave races? What other outdoor sports do I need to try??
Keep Smiling and Be Grateful =)
