2013 Race Schedule

The Count Down Timer is clicking away ------------->

Ironman Florida is my only "A" race for 2013.

That means I am going to be a three sport guy for 12 months.

Here is how the year is going to look
Feb 2nd - BridgeFest 5k (Kingwood, TX)
April 20th - Lake Tejas Sprint Triathlon (Colmesneil, TX)
September 21st - Redman 70.3 (Oklahoma City, OK)
November 2nd - Ironman Florida (Panama City Beach, FL)

Yep, only have four races planned right now. I might add a running race or two but right now this is all I am doing.

Why these races?

The Bridgefest 5k will be my first race. It is a local 5k that I have done the last two years and really enjoy the event so am running it again. It will also be the first time I have raced since being sick so it gives me something to train for over the next month.

The Lake Tejas Tri is about 2hrs North of me and is on a what looks to be a hilly bike course. I haven't done a Triathlon since the August Ironman and figured this small race (capped at 300ppl) would be a good event to get the Tri legs back.

Redman is in Oklahoma City and is only about a 6.5hr drive for me from North Houston. More importantly, it is exactly 6 weeks out from Ironman Florida which makes this close to perfect (8 weeks out would be just perfect) for a long training day under race conditions. And the course conditions should be similar to that of Panama City, maybe a little warmer, but will be flat and windy.

Ironman Florida was decided on over a year ago. I wanted to do a fast Ironman course and few are faster than the track at Panama City Beach.

Who else has 2013 already planned?  We doing any of the same races?

Thanks for Reading,
