Living in Tanzania, I’ve really missed being able to run races and compete in triathlons. So I’ve crammed as many races as I can into our furlough plans this year. I’m not in just amazing shape, but I have been running and biking a little. I think I ought to be able to set personal records in every race distance that I didn’t race before the age of 21. [I was much faster back then — possibly due to being 40-60 pounds lighter.] And thanks to some really nice friends, I have a loaner bike to ride, and my registration costs are even being subsidized.
Here’s a list of the races I’m entering. If you’re nearby and looking for some friendly competition, feel free to join me.
