Swim a 'lil, Bike a 'lil, Run Run Run!

I have officially signed up for the Bear Lake Brawl!! :)  I am going to do the Olympic distance; 1500 meter(one mile) swim, 24.8 mile bike and 6.2 mile run.  My first Triathlon ever was the Honolulu Tri, also an Olympic distance, I was on a cheap Wal-Mart Schwinn mountain bike with slick tires, it was super tough!  I have since done about a dozen tri's, but I have not done one in about 5 years!  I am very excited!  Since I am training for the marathon and that is the number one goal for the summer, I am just trying to get in at least one swim and one ride a week.  Last week was the first week of trying this and I got it in! YAY!  This week I am going to do an open water swim with a friend at Herriman Reservoir and hopefully get in a rode ride with another friend on Thursday.  I feel like I would be able to complete an Olympic distance tri tomorrow, but I am happy that I have a little over a month to get better prepared so I will be able to function after I complete it.  Since it is at Bear Lake, I am sure a motivating factor will be enjoying a yummy raspberry shake after completion!  Sure it doesn't fit in with my healthy eating, but when in Bear must enjoy a raspberry shake! ;)
