I was approached by a few members from the Tremont Tri Team (T3) regarding running for their relay team. Jared Milam, a pro triathlete was going to race and they wanted a shot and taking him down. I was happy to participate and looked forward to running the course as opposed to participating in a triathlon.

I was looking forward to a quality event - I was not looking forward to a challenging 15K course notorious for humidity and heat. After a great week of training with a nice 5 x 1 mile session on thursday I was excited to test the waters on week 11. I continue to put in the time. A 4 mile warm-up with Straza and I was ready to go at least.

I went to tremont to race as I missed my threshold workout the night before. A low key race I told myself - it doesnt matter. Leave my light flats at home, and I wore and often running t-shirt with a bib. I wanted to ensure I did not do anythign other than focus on a good workout. Young folks where everywhere after I finished warm-up on the course.

I didnt feel good heading to the race, was tired and after a week of 95 miles was really just interested in trying to do my best. My Warm-up was terrible , however it was nice to see mitchell. I was surprised how warm it was over memorial day weekend - you have to love the midwest.

Another solid week of training, I went into the Lake Run a bit tired. Straza, Sharon, Mike and new team member Scott head out for a quick 3 mile warm-up. I mess up my warm-up - instead of doing 5 minutes at tempo, I run mile 3 in 5:39 - wrong (that cost me later) .
