09 LOOK AHEAD

Back again. Hope all your training is going well. I have kinda set out there some of the races I am thinking about for this year. Its a wild mix. Half Irons...Sprints,...Olympics... Swim only's. Ultras... See the list on my sidebar I am not sure if I will race in all those races...but its just good to get that stuff down somewhere. (in this case...cyberworld).

Training is going well. I have to have a strong weekend to meet my running goals this week and I think you might have heard...we got slammed....about another foot of snow. That hasn't stopped me from trying to run outside, however this week.. 3 of 4 runs were on the treadmill.

I will be running Friday Am at North Chagrin after I give a speech at a 6am breakfast at Landerhaven. The theme???? Relating an exotic coffee and how its harvested to the sports teams in Cleveland. No kidding. I'm twisted that way. Google Kopi Luwak

Folks at SofSole sent me another pair of Yaktrax Walkers. I just put those on over my running shoes when I was shovelling snow and they worked fine. I ran on hard packed snow with them too and they have worn okay.

Sending best wishes to Mickey Ryzmek, the cool race director of the Greater Cleveland Triathlon. He took a spill around Christmas. Fractured his tibia, fibula and dislocated his ankle...

Mickey sent me the newest U.S. Sports Event Guide. Included was a great article about the Freedom Run done with Original Ironman Tom Knoll, his son Warren and Hubie K. I had a chance to run with those guys and the article talked about their swing through Cleveland and even had a pic of us!!!! Cool Stuff. Thanks Mickey!! Good luck mending.!!!!
Everyone...great training to you...and of course...remember...Life's a Blast

I like how you call it a race wish list. I think of mine as a tentative race calendar, but I like wish list better for some reason.
