A Great Invitation

A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to do the Ironman 70.3 Hawaii race with her next June. I was immediately thrilled about such an idea! What an awesome place to race! I have to do a half iron as part of my training for Ironman Mont-Tremblant and what could be better than doing that in Hawaii? The idea of a girls' weekend, with someone whose company I really enjoy, was pretty appealing, too.

I have to teach next spring session and this race is during that time. I wasn't sure I could get away but I went to ask the Dean of my faculty if I dare take off in the middle of term. To my surprise, she was very excited about it and totally supportive!

So, the planets have aligned and my friend and I are registered for the race! Now, I have to try not to be too excited about a race that is 8 months away! But the training will begin again pretty soon....
