2 "New" Possible Events!

Saturday, January 01, 2011

I found 2 new possible events today. WooHoo!!!

1. I was looking for an event I could participate in as my first organized bike ride. Well, I found the Dallas Tour! It is a slow, family friendly ride... so my daughter can join me!!! There are 3 distances: 8, 20 & 30 miles. I'm not sure which we'll do right now. I do like that the event is for children, too, but I'm not sure how far my daughter can ride. (or me, for that matter!) Also, it is out of town (though near my mom's) the weekend before my next half marathon. I'm not really trying to set a PR in this HM, though. I think it'll be just too hilly for that! So, a nice, slow bike ride the weekend before would be nice!

2. The LiveSTRONG challenge in Austin in October! This is a 2 day event where you run 5K on Saturday and then choose a distance between 10-90 miles to ride on Sunday. I'm hoping my sister-in-law will join me! Or that I find some SPers to join! The possible rides are: 10, 20, 45, 65, & 90. It'll cost $75 for the 2 day event. I'm excited, though it is still a long way off. And, I'm wondering how far I can ride by then... maybe 45 or 65???

    Oh these both sound like fun! ON my last big bike ride, I saw a little girl about 10 or so with her dad. They did the 45 miler! I was amazed because she had a small bike. So she did a heck of a long more than I did on my big bike. She looked like she was doing great. OOOOOF!

    Have fun on both :)
