THE START OF RACE SEASON!!

And where better to kick it off than in Vegas! Yep, next week I will be returning to the Lifetime Fitness Leadman Epic 250 Triathlon that I participated in last year . . . Remember this awesome run through the railroad tunnels? It was such a cool event.

Last year’s was loooooooooong—time-wise, it took me longer than ironman did. But this year, because the event had to me moved from May to March just a couple months ago, the race will be half distance, or 2.5km swim, 109.5km bike, and 13km run—straight uphill! Turns out we skip my favorite part of the run this year and just head straight up the hill from Lake Mead to Boulder City. Ouch.

And my dear friend Tara won’t be there because in the meantime, she went and got pregnant and just welcomed baby Maya Evie! We will definitely miss her and hubs Brucey this year.

But the GCM and I are looking forward to post-race celebrations in Vegas this year with BFFs Auny Sammy, Dr. Muffin, Emily, and hubs Andy who will all be experiencing their first Leadman—word is spreading about this cool race! And it is still  open for entry if you want to join us.

Also, next Thursday we have a “Meet the Pros” event and autograph session at the Vegas Lifetime Fitness. I was fortunate enough to attend the opening of this facility last year and, forget about us—the place is definitely worth seeing. It is the coolest fitness club I have ever been to!

Come check it out and say hello to the GCM and I next Thursday, March 29, from 6-7 PM here:

Lifetime Fitness, 10721 West Charleston Boulevard, Summerlin, Nevada.
