Asthma

Posted on October 26, 2010 - Filed Under Exercise, Random, Triathlon | 5 Comments

Turkey Tri

Posted on September 24, 2010 - Filed Under Exercise, Triathlon | 4 Comments

I just signed up for the “Turkey Tri” sprint-distance triathlon on November 6th. This event was the first triathlon I ever did… way back in 2007. I’ve done this event every year since then, except for last year when my foot was injured.
Such a fun event and I’m pumped to set a new PR. What [...]
