August Makes Me Tired

I already need a nap, and the month has just begun.  For some reason, August has a tendency to be a crazy month for me.  Thankfully, this year isn’t quite as crazy as last year (three races and a 24 hour bike ride?  Really?) but it’s still going to be interesting (two races and a 24 hour bike ride).

This past weekend, obviously, was the Fort Ritchie Sprint.  I think this one is coming off my list.  I love the organization, and it’s not that I’m against a hard race, but for now, I think I need to focus elsewhere.

Two weeks from now is the Iron Girl Columbia Sprint Triathlon. I love this race for all the beginners participating, but it’s also a challenging course, and it’s a good chance for me to see if I have improved over the previous year.  Last year, I cut quite a bit of time.  Let’s see if I can manage it again this year.

The following weekend, I’ve got 24 Hours of Booty.  This is a fundraiser for the LIVESTRONG foundation and Ulman Cancer Fund.  24 hours, bike as far as you possibly can.  It’s a lot of fun, but it’s exhausting.  I’m also still fundraising, and every little bit helps.

I think I’m going to need a vacation in September.  I don’t think it’s going to happen, but a girl can dream.
