Holtz: We Tri Hard

Well it's been more than a week (ok, more than a few weeks) since I updated my blog. Since my last post both Mike and I have competed in triathlons. I did an all-women's tri in Spicewood, TX at Pace Bend Park. I had SO much fun! WAY more fun than at my first, and only other, triathlon in Shreveport last summer. I finished 26th out of 58 in my age group. Not too shabby! I was most proud of my run: 13th in my age group at a 9:19 pace!!

Mike participated in a triathlon here in Alamo Heights last weekend. In fact, he rode his bike to the starting line! I drove over in time to say 'hi' before he got in the pool. I watched his entire swim, saw him at each of the 3 laps for the bike and watched him cross the finish line less than an hour after he jumped in the pool! I'm VERY proud!

Mike will be training for a half IronMan in Austin October 17th. My next big thing is a full marathon, the San Antonio Rock 'n Roll Marathon, in November. Mike is also planning on running the full that day as well. It will be a first for both of us! I've heard the Rock 'n Roll races are really fun with great music and great food! Can't wait!
