I finally signed up for the Ludington Triathlon for this weekend. This is sort of my makeup race for the canceled Millennium Triathlon. It is an Olympic distance triathlon rather than a Sprint. I really haven’t backed off my training much since Steelhead, so I should be ready for it. I am hoping that I can best my Grand Haven Tri performance, which shouldn’t be too difficult because there won’t be the long run between the swim and transition area like there was in Grand Haven. That alone should cut 7 minutes off my time.
We haven’t finalized our plans yet, but we may take my boss up on an offer to stay at their cottage on the night before the race so that we are bit closer to Ludington on race day. Either way, I am sure that we will spend some time relaxing in Ludington after the race. We spent some time there last summer, and it is a very fun and relaxing city. It has a great touristy Main Street, but isn’t overwhelming. Plus, there are lots of good eateries that we will have to decide between.
More details to come as we figure them out!
