White Lake Half-Iron / Kinetic Half

A few us have taken on the half-iron challenge this upcoming May: White Lake Half in NC and Kinetic Half in Virginia. Want to join us?

I’m training like crazy. Or at least I think I am. I ran 10 miles yesterday with my buddy John (new to Wannabe Riders) and although the run was slow going I felt good. More importantly, I’ve fully recovered. As a matter of fact, I did 1900 yards in the pool today.

Back to training tomorrow! I will say that I’m doing a much better job sticking with my training schedule compared to my first half-iron last august. I’m finding that my body is recovering much quicker this time around. I’d like to think that I am training hard, but who knows?

What’s important is that I am having fun! I’m training to stay average!

Here you are, team–your 2011 Wannabe Riders Against Cancer jersey!

I interviewed myself to on how I came up with this year’s design. Here’s how it went down:

Me: How did you come up with this year’s design?

Me: It was pretty easy. Our logo should remain the same year over year, and we got a lot of attention last year as the purple team, so I wanted to keep the purple. I decided to slim us down and add a bit of badass, so black became a dominant color. Then I reversed the logo to white, and, voila!

Me: Will it match last year’s bibs?

Me: You betcha. If you have bibs from last year, perfect. If not, black shorts will look great.

Me: I’m pretty stoked. I think the team will look great!

Me: I couldn’t agree more. I hope the team likes it as much as I do!
