August Rewind


I ran 264km this month!!!! This is a huge monthly mileage PR for me...I am pretty rootin tootin happy about this...It just goes to show that when I slowly increase my mileage I don't get hurt...slow is best...

I rode 164km not my best but I also wasn't really focused on cycling this month...

I swam 3km this month...haha...I decided that after my Tri I would stop swimming because of logistics...I will start this up again in the late fall after Chicago Marathon...

I ate a lot of this:

Honestly....why are Blizzards so freakin good?!?!?!? Ugh....I could eat one EVERYDAY...I have already had 2 this week...:)


I signed up for:

I am scared/anxious/excited/pumped....every emotion...I am pretty much in shock................... so on JULY 7, 2012 I will be in Muncie Indiana!!!

Bring on SEPTEMBER!!! ONLY 38 more sleeps until Chicago Marathon!


  1. August was a great month for you. Congrats on signing up for ironman, you will do great!

  2. Congrats on the awesome mileage this month!!! I agree, blizzards are just too yummy, it's difficult to limit the intake! I'm so excited for your race next year!!!! It will be an amazing experience!!!

  3. You had a great month, congrats. I have to agree with your feelings on the Blizzard too. It seems to have become my most recent addiction as well. Although my favourite was the triple chocolate which was only a temporary flavour! Woo hoo for the triathlon....

  4. I am really hoping Muncie works out for me... Looks like a great race and would be cool to see you there for our first shot at 70.3! Booyeah!

    Killer job on August and I am right there with you on the Blizzards. Soooo good but sooo bad!

  5. Congrats on the awesome mileage PR - wow !! Impressive, but most importantly, completed without injury. Woo hoo!

    And WOW! I loved seeing your July 2012 goal posted! It's already been a lot of fun following your training journey for Chicago again, but I am now looking forward to this new event! Just wicked, Alicia! :)

  6. NO WAY!!! I'm planning to do it too!!!!!

    Blizzards have crack in them. I'm convinced.

  7. Oh, shh. Only Marlene and one other person know about my 70.3 plans. I'm so bad at keeping my own secrets. LOL

  8. That is huge! Congrats on the distance PB!!! And congratulations on signing up for Muncie. Awesome news!!
