Looking Back ... and a Bit Ahead

Well, September was busy, busy, busy. And, October is looking to be more of the same. High school swim season began, peaked, and has started the slide into October and championship meets. Colin swam in Orlando again this year with our friends the Ayers bringing home several new best times: 200 Free, 400 IM, 100 Free, 200 Back, and the 50 Free. Aidan is making great strides in the third grade while loving his new teacher: Mrs. Jones; who, by the way, was Colin's third grade teacher as well. Mike continues to "catch" the bad guys and keep all of Tallahassee safe and on the straight and narrow. I love him for the job he does, and because he is him.

I ran, and rode, and ran, and rode, and ran some more including a 5K personal best time. September also say the accomplishment of reaching 3,000 training miles for the year (to date). Yes, you read correctly. I have run/ridden more than 3,000 miles so far this year. Woo-hoo! I'm loving it!

So now that we are "officially" into marathon season, here is the outlook - revised in some places - for the season. Taking note that things for me are ALWAYS subject to change.
