Its On! Miami Man Half Iron in November!

August 1, 2012

A calendar with no races has left Dan and I a little lackluster. For me, since IM Haines City (yikes!), my workouts have been more for fitness, not moving me toward a particular goal and somedays I wonder what kind of shape I still am in. Dan and I still curse at how hard it is to get in peak shape, and how easy it is to lose it all. So as of today, we have a new race on the calendar:

November 11th: Miami Man Half Iron

I am super excited to race again with Dan and it will be really fun to be in Miami. Have I ever mentioned that Dan and I live way too far apart? Doesn’t get much further than this.

This course sounds awesome. Well, I am mostly excited about the run through the Metro Zoo. Yes, the cheering squad will be led by a bunch of monkeys. This is organized by Multi Race and is not an Ironman branded event. The reviews I have read have been great: Half TRIing and just check out these awesome caps: via Bike Diva.

So Dan is claiming us dibs on the podium in our age groups and that we are both going to run a sub 1:30 half (ha, good one). Glad we are setting the bar high. Now let’s get training.


Really Dan, a sub 1:30?
