With IMAZ 140.6 being cancelled, it didn't take a crystal ball to determine that Rock N Roll Arizona marathon was next. Both IRONMAN and Rock N Roll are part of the same money hungry dumpster fire. It's not like IMAZ was going to be legit anyways with a shortened bike course and no pros...jeez, another victIm of 2020 I guess. As I had just started to crank out some longer runs for RNR, I was hopeful I could kick off the new season like usual with the Arizona marathon. So, guess I'll just continue to train and keep throwing all this unspent race entry money into My Kona piggy bank.
As we enter Thanksgiving week here and most people are risking becoming a felon by having family over, don't forget to burn some calories this week and locate your stretchy pants! With the lockdowns and safety PROTOCOLS due to COVID-19, the typical holiday weight gain is going to be EXPONENTIALLY worse! This isn't a shallow slam at overweight or "lazy" people, this is a serious problem. It is an uncomfortable topic but Americans are not known for thier healthy lifestyles. Just because your Turkey Trot was cancelled doesn't mean you can't grab a few friends and run a 5k. Some fresh air and sunlight does wonderS...A body in motion stays in motion!
With IMAZ being cancelled I didn't get the opportunity to snag some more photos of the athletes and therefor also didn't have a chance to earn a few extra bucks by selling my photos. Incase you live under a rock, go check out Bulldog Photography and see some of my work. While at the LBS (MOXIE) they were getting ready for a MTB race. I kind of drug my feet looking for an excuse not to go out there as it was about a 45 minute drive. I put my big boy pants, well shorts on and ventured out to the 6 & 12 Hours of Fury race at McDowell Mountains. Below are a few shots and the full album can be found here!
Hopefully I have some racing related news to share soon, for now, pre-burn those calories for Turkey Day. Gobble Gobble!
Useless Fact: Total miles for 2020 are 3,432
WORK HARD. STAY HUMBLE. A LIFE FILLED WITH SWIM, BIKE & RUN. 5Ks TO MARATHONS, SPRINT TO IRONMAN 140.6
