“Life at race pace” was the slogan on the t-shirts worn by the Cal tri team. Wildflower triathlon weekend was an amazing race with great support (650 volunteers, 3 volunteers to every racer). Surprisingly, race weekend did not make me want to return to the sport. I continue to swim, bike and run occasionally but I no longer care about how fast you can get from point a to point b. The weekend, however, brought a renewed spirit to get into shape for upcoming adventures.
Life at race pace seems to be my motto these days. I have only two weeks off between spring-summer and summer-fall semesters and the each week is already booked.
In two weeks, when the semester ends, I am volunteering with the medical team to support the AIDS Lifecycle 7 day bike ride from SF-LA. It should be a good patient care experience and interesting to support 3000 participants.
This summer, I am enrolled in advanced Algebra (the pre-req for Statistics) which meets M-F, 8-11 am each day and Human Development Lifespan Psychology – my first online class.
After the 6 week summer session, I am going to bike mechanic school for the first week in August, in Portland, Oregon. If all my ducks are in a row, I will bike back to SF to start the fall semester. I am enrolled in Chemistry again and Human Anatomy, both with labs.
