We all make goals about summer plans, work out regimens and events that we would like to take part in, right? This summer I have decided to train for and (if all goes well) participate in the Steamboat Springs Triathlon here in Steamboat Springs, Colorado on Sunday, August 30th. I have NEVER done anything like this before, which truly shows that anyone can do it if they put their mind to it. The Steamboat Springs Triathlon is a ¾ mile swim, a 20 mile bike ride and a 4 mile run all at beautiful Lake Catamount just outside of town. For more information about the race please visit  www.steamboattriathlon.com.

The training aspect of preparing for an event like this has been a little overwhelming but I am happy to report that I am sticking to my workouts and I have a great support system that has been behind me every step of the way. The best part is that I get to spend time in the stunning scenery here in the Yampa Valley; trust me it is the best motivator when training. So, stay tuned for updates and progress. Any of our Steamboat Springs Daily Blog readers a tri-athlete? Comments, suggestions and encouraging words are welcome.
