Marathons For Charity

Jun 26, 2007 |

I hope to do some races for charity and such this summer as well as future seasons. You have┬áprobably heard about various marathons for various causes.

Local Park

Jun 25, 2007 |

I found a local park that has an outdoor pool and has tennis courts. The pool hasn’t opened for the season yet, but it probably will soon. I’ll likely need a new pool pass from the town, but I can probably get one cheap. In addition to my triathlon training, I can get some good […more]
