They cancelled the swim.

I signed up for Oregon because I wanted to do a river swim.

If they cancel the swim, it's my fault.





I had the Choo swim cancelled on me so I'll take part of the OR blame


Btw, I'm sorry you were sick on vacation. Do you have an epi pen? If it's a shellfish allergy that's really scary! Hope you figured it out and that's the end of it!

Originally posted by Hot Runner No....Rain AGAIN! This is the fourth rainy weekend in a row. Starting to go insane (actually that ship sailed long ago!) School's out, though. One student down with Covid for the last week of school; another went home sick with 45 minutes to go on the last day--came in from recess and said he needed to lie down. One of my livest live wires, so if he says he's sick, it's major. Poor kid. It was his last recess ever (moving on to middle school). Another threw up in the final 5 minutes but her mom claims it was food poisoning. OMG. Good we are out. For what it's worth, 27 months into the pandemic, my workplace actually gifted me two free Covid test kits. This is the first time I have been offered such a thing. Feeling healthy so far, though. I will test if I don't. I believe I am now the only staff member who hasn't (to my knowledge) gotten Covid. (Knock on wood....) Quite possibly have had it, possibly multiple times, but have never noticed any symptoms that I don't normally get with seasonal allergies, or noticed any abnormal heart rate, fatigue, etc. during training. Who knows?! Raining torrentially now. If I knew a dance to stop it, I would, for you IM Oregon people!

That's some kinda wrap up for the Kids portion of the year!

Originally posted by fortissimo We got back from our St Thomas/St Croix trip on Wednesday morning at 3:00 am. My goal for the trip was to train like usual, but swim in the ocean instead of the pool.

Next morning was okay, but I got worse during the day. I will spare you all the details. Tuesday morning was a bit better, but Tuesday afternoon was not good. I woke up Wednesday feeling 100% normal so we went to St Johns for the day. I stayed away from fish for the rest of the vacation, but I noticed anytime there was shellfish on the menu at a restaurant, I would start feeling ill after eating again. My husband noticed that the french fries tasted like fish. My sister put two and two together and asked one restaurants if they cooked the other food in the same oil/grill that they did the shellfish. Yep. They said everyone did. Of course we only had a few days left of our trip before we figured it out. But at least those few days I was fine. I am 100% sure it's an allergy because the way I felt after eating was how I feel after I did when taking Aleve before we discovered that I was allergic to the Naproxen in Aleve.

Ugh! What a bummer of a vacation :-(

No race for me this week but I did the local "Tour De Blueberry" with about 600 of my closest friends. Great event! They have multiple distances. I did 66 miles (closer to 67) and met a lot of nice people. I rode with a woman from Illinois. She was down visiting her son and decided to sign up last minute. It was hot but fun!

I've heard that it's a nice ride! WE WANT PICTURES!

Very sorry to hear about your vacation. Adult onset allergies are definitely a thing.

My wife's favorite food used to be crab legs. We'd have them a couple times a year on special occasions. Then she developed a shellfish allergy. Her throat got really sore and started to close up one night after some Chinese food that had Oyster sauce in it and ended up at the hospital. She wasn't huge into shellfish other than crab legs, so we honestly kinda forgot about it. A few years later I had a day off and decided to make gumbo. I didn't think she would eat it because she's not a huge gumbo person, but I didn't make it spicy just in case. That night she dipped a spoon in the broth and took a tiny lick of it. She then started complaining about how hot it was - it was pretty dramatic and I was saying that's ridiculous, and even added a ton of cayenne and spices to it since I knew now she wasn't go to eat it. She came back in the kitchen about 15 mins later and said "I think something is really wrong - did you use shrimp in it"?

We really had forgotten about the shellfish allergy, and I made the gumbo from some shrimp broth that I had made from the tails of the shrimp that day. One tiny lick on the spoon and we were headed to the hospital at about 90+ mph with an epi-pen in hand (we lived up in the hills out of town at the time, so an ambulance would've taken longer). We even pulled over at one point and discussed using the epi-pen, but ultimately decided not to (doctor later told us we should have just done it, no harm in doing so other than the needle). We didn't get pulled over, but I figured I'd have a good excuse if we did.

Definitely something to be cognizant of moving forward. We typically don't have any shellfish in the house any more, and I eat Asian food and shrimp/crab when I am traveling for work to keep it all away from her.

There are two races in October I am interested in, but there are no races on my calendar at the moment.

I skipped the running group's Saturday morning run this week to get in a longer bike ride with the local Tri Club.  My longest ride of the year had been about 35 miles.  I did 45 miles on Saturday which was possibly too much too soon.  It was all at a really easy pace but I got a crick in my back that evening so I may have overdone things. I am going into a build phase for the next month or two or three.

Ya...I have the same problem with the Tri Club on Saturday morning group training as I do with the running club on Saturday morning group training.  The running group is all training for Marathons and the Tri Club is all training for 70.3 or 140.6 triathlons.   I am training for 5k's-10K's and  Sprint - Olympic distance triathlons.  So when I go with the group I always end up going longer that what I need for the week.  :-)

Sounds like weekend masters swim for me. Somehow ended up swimming 4700m on Saturday..... I kept thinking, "No fair, this is even longer than Ironman!" But I tend to always just finish the workout if I can.

FYI it did NOT rain in Oregon today, at least locally.(I live about 60 miles south of Salem, where IM Oregon is). The Willamette is still higher than normal for this time of year but definitely down from last week. (I'm upriver from Salem, so it should be lower there.) No rain forecast for the next week or so. Things are looking up for you racers!

Thanks, Karen! This is one of the great things about our group! Boots on the ground. It's all well and good for someone on the other side of the country to say, well, the forecast looks good. It's a completely different thing to hear from someone relatively local!

ok so everyone see the news on CDA?!

We were planning on doing it in 2024 - that was supposed to be year 3 of the 3 year rotation between CDA, St George, and a 3rd location that was never named.

The Mayor clearly does not want CDA - but the rest of the town likes the money it brings.

SO......anyone else thinking about doing it? It's one of those great races that may not be back for a long while.....if I had known it was coming in 2023 I probably would not have signed up for AZ. DAMN YOU IRONMAN!

Ya, I saw the announcement.   It won't change any of my race plans.  My plan for my first few years in the sport were to do one (1) destination race every other year.  I have pretty much stuck to that.  In 2016 I did St George 70.3, in 2018 I did Boulder 70.3, in 2020 I was going to do AG National in Milwaukee but that got canceled.  In 2022 I did the Kiwami Team Camp in Tempe, AZ for my "destination event". 

Every year I make a list of all the races I want to do.  The past few years they have been about 25-30 races on the list.  Yes, I want to do them all.  CDA would a good one.

Happy weekend!!

Happy long weekend to all in North America! We gloriously have no real plans after a crazy May and June full of lovely socializing and plenty of kid activities. 

Now that the weather has improve and races are back I am having some FOMO - I have primarily doing at home strength workouts and enjoying it a lot. The last few weeks i've gotten up early and gotten out to casually ride with a friend. I got a SUP for my birthday and have taken that out for a cruise on the river near me. So life is good. But what about tri??? 

I've been having lots of ongoing conversations with myself about what i want. Today i am about to register for a sprint-ish distance at the end of the summer but also trying figure out a reasonable training load while still managing all the life stuff including 3 weeks of vacation. I am sure i keep my expectations low I can do it. I just really haven't been doing ANY of the trisports with any sort of regularity in several months but i am excited by the prospect. Can I do it? Probably. Should I??
