Ironman Calgary 70.3 in one week

One week from today I am going to embark on a new adventure in my triathlon life….a 70.3. Next Sunday at 6:10am I’m going to dive into Ghost lake, bike back into Calgary and then run a half marathon around Glenmore Reservoir. There are going to be a lot of firsts on that day. It will be my first 70.3 or half ironman, it’ll be my longest running race over 10miles, it’ll be also my longest swim and bike race. I am very excited about it and look forward to testing myself in front of friends and family. I can feel my body coming into some fitness thanks to some huge mileage weeks these past 2 weeks. I have one more week of big mileage and then I’m starting to focus on speed to try and gear up for Elite nationals in Kelowna on August 22. I’ll keep you posted this week as I lead up to Sunday’s race.
