I have officially signed up for my first triathlon! Last year I was supposed to do one on my 30th birthday, but it got cancelled and I ended up running the Leesburg 20k instead. I was super bummed that I couldn’t do the tri, so I signed up for a duathlon last September. (I suppose it makes more since to do a du before a tri, but…)

Anyways, after looking at the race website for some of the races I did earlier this year (Santa’s Workshop 5k and Frozen 5k) and noticed they had a triathlon! So, I asked my friend John from Run. Geek. Run (disney) if he wanted to do it with me, and he said yes! Yay!

So, here I go – ready to train for my first triathlon (now if only the weather would cooperate!) Who else wants to join us on May 24?!



To help motivate me in my training for this tri, I needed some sort of visual reminder of what I was working for. I was super excited to find this small shoe charm from Race-Kred that I could wear during my training. The charm is super tiny (it weighs as much as two times) and you can’t even feel it on your shoe.20150209_155304

I got the charm and fake laced it onto my shoe to go for a quick two mile run before having to unlace my entire shoe. I couldn’t tell the charm was there, and every time I looked down I was motivated to keep going!

  1. I love the Ultra charm as I’m training for me first 50 miler in September. I did my first Tri last year and had a blast though I should have trained for the swimming! Have fun!

  2. I’ve done 2 sprint tris, and one duathlon… currently training for a long sprint this summer, and hoping for an olympic in the fall… ultimately a 1/2 IronMan… someday… so yes, I’d love a ‘tri’!

  3. Love the 5K charm. I’ve completed a bunch of 5Ks but I have never run the whole thing. This year, my goal is to run a whole 5K. My goal is to achieve that this summer and move onto a 10K in October.

  4. So awesome on the triathlon..I won’t say I will never do that because I said I would never do a Marathon and well that got squashed when I did the Marine Cops Marathon last year.. Definitely would want the 26.2..since I still haven’t bought anything with that awesome accomplishment on it!

  5. Good Luck To You.
    I need it to.
    What a great idea for motivation.
    I like the Runner Girl Charms: Race-Kred And TRLRNNER
