A quick update on my Biggest Looser progress, down just over 20 pounds in 6 weeks. With 2 weeks left in the contest I'm in the lead, now I just need to hang on through the end.
This years race schedule is starting to take shape. Right now Erin and I are signed up for the Fargo Marathon and Trail Mix. Trail Mix is April 16th in Bloomington, MN. It will be Erin's first 25k trail run, and my first 50k event. The Fargo Marathon is May 21 and will be Erin's first marathon. The other event on our calendar is a birthday run on March 26th. Rachel and I both have birthdays in late March. Initially she was planning a birthday marathon, but Maggie talked us into doing 30 miles for my 30th birthday. It's going to be fun to run with them on what will be my longest run ever. The schedule beyond May is still up in the air. I'm thinking about trying to do a half ironman on June 11th, but haven't committed myself to it yet and I'd like to do the 50k at Afton this year. This fall I'd like to find a 50 mile run to do, but haven't really locked in on any specific event yet. I may open the search to include 100k events. Between the big events we'll probably fill up the schedule with things like the Tour of Lakes bike ride, Turtlefest 5k, our anniversary run, and I'm trying to talk Erin and some others into doing Average Joe's for their first triathlon. It should be another busy summer.
