What Will I Do With My Free Time?

4 Comments

Between tapering this week and thoughts of life post-Ironman, I can’t help but think about what I will do on July 21st and every day after that.  Jim and I spent a fair amount of our Sunday morning run from the Capitol to Georgetown and across the river wondering just that.  Will we keep training?  Will we do another Ironman?  Or will Jim return to his focus on running, me on swimming, and so on?

Thankfully, those long rides and runs provide plenty of time to dream and plan away!  So, here are a couple of my post IMLP plans:

  • New Jersey State Triathlon July 27th – Don’t worry, I’m just racing the swim portion of an Olympic Relay!  I’ll spend the rest of my time there volunteering and cheering on the 200+ DC Tri Club participants!
  • Recruit volunteers and assist with the volunteer coordination for Nation’s Triathlon in DC, September 14th.  You should volunteer!
  • August/September backpacking trip in Boulder!
  • September cycling trip on Martha’s Vineyard!
  • Throw some dinner parties
  • Visit Ann Arbor

I’m considering doing one more race too.  Maybe an olympic or sprint distance? Any suggestions for one in late August or September?

  1. You could do the Annapolis tri on September 7th … slots are still open …

  2. You could do the SavageMan Oly distance race in late Sept with the DC Tri crew.

  3. Patriot’s Oly or Sprint in Williamsburg on September 7th. I’m doing the sprint and going down on Saturday to cheer for Kimberly.

  4. ooohhh – all good suggestions! I could do the Patriot’s half too. Maybe I’ll see how I feel next week, then sign up for something!
