Well, I've finally come to a decision about Timberman. I'm not going to be doing this year's race. It was a tough call for me because I think I could do it, but I don't think I should do it. I'm frustrated with myself, but as my mom keeps saying, "You broke your arm, Amy!" I feel so sad that I won't get to meet Kristin, so I'll have to settle for living vicariously through her long workouts leading up to the race!
A couple of people have commented that I should set my sights on a 70.3 race later in the season. Unfortunately, because of my job, that's not a real possibility for me. It's pretty much August or earlier as I can't take any vacation starting September 1 until the New Year. So, there will be no 70.3 for me in 2010.
Thanks to everyone for the support and hanging in there with me while I complained about my predicament. I'm 99% sure I'll be doing the New York City triathlon on July 18. I'm sure that I won't be fast, but I'm always in this for the fun, so I know that if I go in with the right mindset, I'll have a blast.
After New York, I'm not sure what my plan will be. I'm hoping to get through that race and then re-evaluate. I think I'm going to work on building up my base, but don't quote me on that if I decide to become a lazy bum again. Of course, no matter what, I'll be blogging about all the ups and downs!
