See Fox warming up... in the bitter cold!

Training has been VERY cold lately. Last week we had our first bike practice...and it snowed the night before. Most of the team went out on the streets that had been plowed and a small group of us went for a long run on a trail that was covered in snow. It required a lot of focus as my ankle still feels off and there were icy patches.

After practice we had an indoor picnic to honor all our teammates who are currently fighting cancer and believe me there were plenty of tears. I was so inspired by every ones stories of determination and perseverance. Great reasons to keep swimming, biking and running.

Since then I've stuck to it but i'm out of town until next Saturday so I won't be able to train with my team which is always hard.

Looking forward to warmer days.

See Fox Double Up!

Today was my first day of training with two workouts. I wore a brace when I swam and that helped stabalize my ankle while I kicked. This evening I bundled up to run in the absurd cold air that January is serving up to the District. The weather turned out to be manageable but the ankle...well not so much. It gave me more trouble than I was expecting, but in the end I was able to push through 30 to 40 minutes. I need to increase that by....well...a lot since I'm supposed to be running a half marathon in 2 months!

craziest part...i'm on the couch with my hear wrapped in a towel on my head snuggled in jammies and watching TV while all my friends are out drinking and being fun! I'm exhausted!

cfox out! it is bed time!

See Fox Dazed...

On January 1st...after leighton made me change a bike tire for practice we started talking about Javier triathlon crush. (aside from you J.bell) and I decided it has been way to long since we have discussed him.

Here is his ITU profile from 09 and watch out ladies...he is single...or was!

and this link will give you more info on his racing career. there is a little video clip there to show you his crash in dextro london...some serious road rash on his back and shoulders! Ouch!

This post is dedicated to Tricia Kane and educating her in the ways of Jav! Your homework assignment is to find a professional triathlete that is going to be your tri crush!

I just finished reading Jeff Bell's Ironman Arizona race report and the tears haven't even dried yet. He is a rock star and one of my hero's and I'm so excited to have someone like him around to inspire me to push myself harder. He is adorable!

He raced 140.6 miles in under 11 hours a couple of months ago. That includes a 2.4 mile swim, a 113 mile bike ride, and a marathon (26.2) run. That race is on my schedule already for 2012. A large group of us have decided to run in order to honor kaitlin and her 5 years of being cancer free!
In the mean time that same group has combined forces to make sure we get things taken care of. This year has been titled "the year of the run!" and our race schedule is already packed.

In March I'm running a half marathon, in April a 10 miler and an Olympic distance tri, in July a half ironman in New York and on halloween celebrate turning 30...I'm running the marine corps marathon. That list doesn't include the 5k and 10k races that will pepper my calendar this year. Including the Remember the 10 run in Stillwater that I'm excited to get home for in April!

I love you all and am happy to be back at it. Enjoy a couple of pics of Jeff...
