This time of year is always a bit odd for us triathletes at ABRT. The road racing season is pretty much over and most of the club are looking forward to a bit of downtime and a training break before looking ahead to next season (and the forthcoming End of Season team BBQ). Some are even looking at the silly season of team transfers.....
Us triathletes on the other hand are getting down to the nitty gritty of the season. These are the final weeks that lead us to the major races of a long season whether it be Ironman races, 70.3M World Championships or the World Duathlon Championships. In this regard ABRT are pretty well represented: myself and Kerri Robbins are going down to Clearwater in November for the 70.3 Worlds, and Kerri is also racing at the Duathlon Worlds in Italy (on Sept 27th) to defend her World Title (how cool is that!). In addition Andy McDonald, Ashley Halsey and myself are Ironman racing (Andy and Ashley at the Fall edition of IM Arizona and myself at ChesapeakeMan). It's all go for ABRT triathletes from here until November.....then we can rest and look ahead to next season!
The trouble is by November the group rides will probably be ramping up again as the road racing members will already be itching to go after their end of season break....no easy Saturday group rides to the beach for us then :-(
- You have to make the best of work trips and a $6 ticket to see the @memgrizz counts as a good deal in my book! . . . . . #memphis #grizzlies #IFB #nba2k19
- Just keep on rolling...even in 27° weather! The @parvillacycles Cranksgiving Ride was a chilly one today (the miles will pay off in the Spring they say) . . . . . . #IFB #cycling #specializedallez #specialized #ciclismo #gopro #parvillacycles #ridemd
