Training. Countdown to Oceanside Ironman 70.3

February 4 I find myself deep into my training for Oceanside Ironman 70.3 which is the first of a planed 5 70.3 distance races for the 2014 race season. I am excited to see what 2014 brings both with a aggressive race schedule as well as two new club affiliations and new scenery for training as my husband, son and myself moved to the Sacramento area in December. I have new training partners as am fully engaged with FCA Endurance and FilAm Triclub and am excited to race with and represent both of these clubs in the coming years. I would also like to thank two new sponsors for 2014 as Quintana Roo stepped up with a gracious offer on a 2014 Illicito and Profile Design with Carbon SVET Zero base bars and Carbon T3 Aero Bars. These two new great sponsors added to returning sponsors from 2013 Vitargo, iRT Wheels, Rock Tape and Tour of Nevada City Bike Shop completely round out everything that is needed for a very exciting 2014. The rest is up to me and my husband/coach to get me ready!

Look forward to seeing everyone at the races!
