Good things must happen in threes as I was selected to be a Fitfluential Ambassador, speaker for FitBloggin15 in Denver and I am thrilled and honored to be selected as part of the Runner's Roost triathlon team. On Sunday afternoon, I attended the Roost Running Triathlon Race Team meeting at the Runner's Roost Denver store. Denver is not unlike most running communities in that it's a very tight-knit group that are passionate about the sport of running and triathlons. While I know many of the athletes on the team, this year I get to represent the best run and triathlon store in Colorado boasting many of the states top athletes.

For many a triathlete especially in Colorado, there are many hours on the trainer indoors, swims at the recreation center, or the occasional outdoor ride (not lately) on the unseasonably warm day. For me, my primary focus for the next eight weeks remains Boston Marathon training and getting my "lungs back." My current run coach knows I will switch to triathlons soon after Boston so she's already incorporating the swim and (indoor) bike on my cross-training days. I note that my rides have been indoors as the bike I totaled in July is still totaled, but I've started to drool over bikes on web-sites as I'm shopping for my 2015 ride.
