shout out friday is finally here!

first let me say, thank goddess it's friday (thanks to barefoot angie bee for coining the word goddess in that context). i took a much needed vacation day today and as much as going to the beach sounded like a great idea, i soon realized that there were way too many things i needed to get in order around the house before i can go off enjoying myself like that. so far, it has been a great day. i started off with a run, met back up with joel for a bike ride, caught up on blogs, did stuff around the house, and then off to swim later this afternoon. what a life! i love it!

shame on me. i unintentionally missed a few shout outs last week so better late than never i say. congrats to:

~ Mark - Triathlete and father of five - he did the Keuka lake tri and if there are any single ladies in the DC area, Mark has a friend named Adam you may like to meet. click on his link to read all about Adam  Mark's race.

~ Big Daddy Diesel- Tri Diesel - did an aquabike race called the Deer Creek.

Shirley Perly - humble triathlete - did the Casper Marathon in Wyoming. She is doing a marathon in every state as a goal. So far, 46 down, 4 to go. Go Shirley!!

~ Springs. Steel Springs - PR'd at a 10K!

~ Brian - I run forth - ran the 50 mile north face endurance challenge race. 50 miles people! Not a 50k. that's chump change for him. he's a trail running machine.

~ Mike - Hungry like the wolfgram - raced the Lake Mills Sprint tri and came in 8th overall and 2nd in his AG.  Good luck also to Mike who is racing again this weekend and will be doing the Liberty half ironman.

~ Julie - Minnesota milage - ran a half marathon in the nasty heat.

~ Rural Girl - Pee on the bike - said she was going to win 1st female overall at the Green Bay oly tri and she stayed true to her word. congrats on the 1st place finish!

now for those who are racing this weekend, race smart, stay hydrated, do your best and most importantly, HAVE FUN while you do it!

~ Maria - Brings Racine - Hy-Vee olympic distance tri. she will be testing out a new seat too. hope it feels plush and you don't even think about it at all.

~ Kathryn - Making Strides - i believe if i read her blog correctly, she is doing the Tap House 5k this evening.

~ Tonya - Racing with babes - is doing the Marine Corp 17.75K race tomorrow.

~ Run Momma, Run - running the Utah Valley marathon this weekend.
i believe that about covers everyone...i hope! again, congrats to everyone who raced last weekend and to those heading out this weekend. sending lots of positive race mojo your way. looking forward to reading all the wonderful race reports.

much love and peace out!
