Did the Lifetime Fitness 5K Turkey Trot with my daughter Hannah today. Was her first official race and we had a great time. It was the inaugural event in Phoenix and there seemed to be a lot of participants, several booths and support. The route was a closed off downtown Phoenix loop that started at the State Capital. Had great time with Hannah and set the tone nicely for a big day of food! Glad she and I could spend some good time together....
A friend told me to sign up for this relatively new race. Happens to be right down the road (well, maybe a little more than "right down the road") from my house. Will be a good primer for the tri races I have planned this year - a good workout day! Look forward to it.

Just signed up for Ironman 70.3 Boulder for 2012. Did quite a bit of research and I am happy about this choice. It is a mere 16 hours from my home in Phoenix and a big elevation change. The water temp, however, is usually nice and warm and the run will be hot - not that I welcome hot runs (remember Soma) it's just that I will be doing most of my training in Phoenix this year so I should be used to the elevated temps... Wish me luck.
