Can you believe it is the end of January already? I saw that someone else had their monthly numbers up today, and I was stunned that it was time for that already! I can't say I'm all that upset with the speed at which this month has flown by. It means we are 31 days closer to spring!!!
Here are the numbers:
Swim: 8h 59m 27750 yards
Bike: 21h 55m 48s 121.4 miles all on trainer or in spin class
Run: 6h 10m 12s 37.43
TRX/Yoga: 6h 30m
Total: 43h 36m
And now for the giveaway. I recently was able to connect with Scott from OutsidePR about doing some reviews and giveaways on My Life as a Trimommy. So, in celebration of being 31 days closer to spring and looking forward to getting out on the road, I am giving away a RoadID.
I consider a RoadID as just basic equipment that everyone needs. Just like you would never think of going for a ride without a helmet (hopefully) or going for a run without clothes on (I was going to put shoes, but then remembered there are quite a few people who run without shoes on a regular basis), you shouldn't be outside training without a RoadID. For those of you who might not know what a RoadID is, it is basically a bracelet that has contact information in case you were in an accident and unable to speak for yourself. Just two summers ago here in Syracuse, a woman on a bike was hit and was unidentified for several hours. I can't even imagine the anguish her family must have felt when they found out. I never want that to happen to my family.
My first RoadID was of the velcro variety, and I have gotten a lot of use out it as evidenced by its eu de training. Since I started wearing it about three years ago or so, however, some of the important information like phone numbers has changed, so I figured it was time to get a new one. This time around I opted for the Wrist ID Elite, which has a rubberized band and a watch-like clasp. The RoadID website is super easy to navigate and design your personalized RoadID. (It also has a sexy picture of Craig Alexander, but that is neither here nor there.) I input all of my info and a few days later I got this in the mail:
So, here's a little secret about me...I love little boxes. I don't know what it is, but, while my husband has been chomping at the bit to throw this box out, you know, since it's what's inside that matters and not the box in of itself, I just want to keep this for something. The practical side of me realizes that I can't keep everything, so instead of keeping it for myself, I will give it to Ryan, who has inherited my love for little boxes.
Anyway, on to the good stuff...what's inside.
Once I figured out how to size it, I popped this baby on. I think I might need to make it just a touch smaller for my weirdly out of proportion to my body teeny-tiny wrist. You can see most of the info I chose to include. I decided I didn't really need to put my phone numbers out for the world to see.
One of the things I love about my RoadID is my little motto at the bottom. This is the same motto I have on my old RoadID. When I first put it on my old one, I don't think I really believed it yet. I remember the moment during my first olympic distance triathlon that it became a realization to me. Now it is just part of my psyche, but I like to remind myself as often as I can that, yes, I am an athlete.
