<<< Read Gasparilla Distance Classic 2013 – Michelob Ultra Challenge Day 1 Gasparilla Race Day 2 The Half Marathon (13.1 miles) 3:30 AM wake-up call to begin the half marathon at 6:00 AM.

Triathlon Training…Attempt

I don’t usually commit to races that I haven’t prepared for. For example, when we signed up for our first Warrior Dash (obstacle course mud run), we knew we could at least run a 5k. When we registered up for the half marathon, we found a training program online and stuck to it for 3 months, so we knew we could run the required 13.1 miles. Our 2 year anniversary is coming up on October 5th, so we wanted to find something...
