Click, Click, Click

With the end of the year just a few days away, so is the deadline for early registration for a lot of races.
So this afternoon, I clicked my way into some of those races.

My race schedule for 08 is really shaping up.

On tap and paid for:

Feb 10 - Mercedes Marathon

March 15 - Tom King Half Marathon

May 18 - Memphis in May Triathlon

May 31 - Coliseum's Rock 'N RollMan Half Iron

June 28 - McMinnville City Triathlon

And of course Ironman Florida on Nov 1, that I paid for a few weeks ago.

I still have a few other races planned but they didn't have a Dec 31 price increase so I am holding onto my money a little longer.

My credit card isn't the only thing that has gotten a workout. I have been running some this week too.

I redeemed my gift of flexibility and skipped Sunday's run and Tuesday's run. But I ran 10 miles on Monday, 9.5 on Wednesday, 5 on Thursday, swam 1750 yards on Thursday and ran 13 this morning. Flexibility came into play again this morning. It started to rain at 11 miles and after 2 miles I had enough and cut the run 2 miles short.

We have two more Christmas celebrations this weekend, calling for a little more flexibility, and then it is hard core training to get ready for this exciting 08 I have paid for!!!

Wow, what a schedule! :)

My knee winced as I dropped my check in the mail for Mercedes. I'm hoping that new shoes & a little rest will solve yet another achy problem.

That's a great schedule, Michele. Merry Christmas and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Nothing like a paid registration to focus the ole training! Don't forget to use that gift of flexibility when you're in the thick of training.

Have a great 2008!

You've already paid for 6 events! I haven't even planned 6 events.

I'm very impressed that you signed up for the Mercedes in Feb. You're already in great shape. You'll rock that event.
