Being a new member of the blog community I have found so many people that are just plain amazing. Within blogging and the triathlon world (runners too) I have found an amazing amount of information, support and friendship. Its a little strange but exciting to have friends all over the place that are training and struggling with the same things I am.
I have noticed on a few blogs that I read, people are posting about either their upcoming race this weekend OR a list of people that are racing this weekend. This is the place I saw it first, Becoming an Ironman, and trust me read his blog it's awesome. So, I would like to start a tradition here on the BENCHWARMER to list all the people that have inspired me one way or another through their blog. Here is the who's who of races this weekend.
Mauricio over at Triathlon at 55 is racing at the New Orleans Ironman 70.3
Jim at 50 after 40 is running the Boston Marathon.....impressive! Jim is planing to run a marathon in all 50 states after the age of 40. I can only dream of such a feat.
Deb at Deb Tris is running the Calgary Police Half Marathon. She posted that part of the race course might be underwater.......I'm no expert, (since it's 80 degress in So Cal today) but isn't it still cold in Calgary this time of year?
Liz at Mommy to Marathon is running her first 5K......Go give her some encouragement! This is amazing.
Jen at Runner....Maybe is running her first 10K
Jess at Run with Jess AND Jen at Adventures of Badgergirl are running the OshKosh Half Marathon
Colleen at Iron Diva is also running a Half Marathon
Last but not least, Tonia at Racing Babes is running the Dismal Swamp Stomp Half Marathon.
Did I miss you? Email me and I will update the list! If you have an upcoming race, email me that too so I can get you on the appropriate Friday Who's Who.
Ok everyone not racing, get out this weekend and get some good training in....your weekend is coming!
