I sent in my application for the Ashland International distance tri yesterday. That's it, I'm committed, no way out now. I'm glad I finally bit the bullet. I think that I will be even more focused now that I am a real entrant and not just a wannabe. This should be interesting since I have not done a tri since I was in highschool and that was a sprint.
I also decided to stay with my long distance coach after a lot of thought. I really like him and I want him to help me with my marathon goal of running a 3:15 (eventually). So to switch now didn't make sense even though his specialty is running and not tri training. Happy 1st day of Spring!!!
