Iron Man Triathlon - Sort of??

Yep! That's right I'm doing an Iron Man Triathlon!!! Well... over the course of 28 days anyway. :-)

The local Triathlon club is sponsoring it, you have to run 26.2 miles, bike 112 miles, and swim 2.4 miles between 02/17 and 3/17.

I've already started the Couch to 5K running program, so I've been jog/walking for a few weeks now. And I will be counting my jog/walking as running, otherwise, I'm not sure I could actually run that far in that time period.

I'm guessing that the hardest part for me will be the bicycling. I don't actually own a bicycle, so I have to go to gym. And its still pretty hard for me to bicycle for really long periods of time with my problematic knees. But I think its a good goal for me!

I'll let you know how it goes. I think eventually I would like to do a triathlon, but I've always been afraid of the running part. I've been doing ok, with the Couch to 5k plan, so now I'm a little more comfortable doing it. Holy Moly I'm going to be busy!!

Benefits Administrative Manager!

I start a new position on Monday, I will be the Benefits Administrative Manager here at the University of Idaho! I'm very excited! It is going to be a challenging position, especially during this difficult time with budget cuts and the like, but I am really looking forward to it! It is a new position here, so I'll be really making my mark on what it is this position does.

This is actually my first legitimate salaried position. Hopefully that isn't going to mean that I work a ridiculous amount of hours ... but I pretty sure it does!

Someone come and find me when my desk starts to resemble this one!
