Ahhhh, the end of the season

In case you are an absolute avid follower of the Tea, you probably weren't aware that I've raced my last triathlon of the season.

And it is a glorious thing INDEED.

As much as I look forward to the start of race season, by the time Sept rolls around, I'm done. Checked out. Stick a fork in me.

It's time to get my run on. It's time for cooler temps (because at some point it will cool down).

No more packing the

What IS up next?

First and foremost, a month of nothing.

Then, of course the Tour of the Moon the first weekend of October (Saturday). 

If you're familiar with this movie, you already know the course.

Which is immediately followed by  Desert Edge on Sunday

Me and my training buddy are affectionately calling it the Challenge Weekend. I have 5 training partners doing the ride on Saturday. Two of them are also doing Desert's Edge with me on Sunday.

Do I mind carrying two bikes, two sets of gear and making a 4 hour drive through the mountains?

HELL NO. I'll do pretty much anything for good food and good company. 

After that, it's Rock n roll Denver Half Marathon for my birthday.

Then, of course, What happens in vegas.....

And finally, Jordan is back to reclaim his title at the Turkey Trot after I beat his best time last year. That should be very interesting since it's only about a week after Vegas.

From here on out, it's all fun and games.

Bring on the off season!

You'll kill the turkey trot.

We always raced a duathlon (a 2/12/2 format) a week after the Country Music Marathon in Nashville. I was always amazed at how much speed the legs had after a few days of rest/recovery from the longer distance.

Granted, it starts falling rapidly as you go deeper into recovery mode, but a race a week after is an awesome thing. :D

You really put together a fun season. I've got 7 more weeks until the ironman then I am looking forward to taking some rest.
