Getting Rolling

Training is back into full swing and with that, comes the obvious thought of when will be my first crack out to see where all the early season training has gotten my fitness. I have been toying around with a few different schedule ideas, and the entire season is by no means set in stone, but I have locked in on a certain race that really piqued my interest. LEADMAN 125!
VEGAS! March 31st, 2012
Like many triathletes I watched with great interest as the inaugural Leadman250 unfolded in Vegas last year. An EPIC indeed.  A distance I will readily admit to being more than just a little apprehensive about! But when I saw that Leadman would be introducing their "half" or "125" distance on the Vegas course, I was greatly intrigued. With a 2.5K(1.5mi) swim, 109.5K (69mi) bike, and 13K (8mi) run the distance is a new one for me. Add to that, that the fact that the swim is in Lake Mead, the ride heads out through the challenging and hilly high desert towards a place called the Valley of Fire, and the run ends in Boulder City near the Hoover Dam, and I was sold. And my season opener was set.

I'll leave you with a little video I made (please excuse the lack of cinematic professionalism, its my first one) of a training day this weekend enjoying the awesome So Cal weather. Enjoy.
