Who are you and what have you done with my wife?

Because of my current injuries my competitive mojo has been....lacking. It's been kind of a I don't give a sh!t attitude for the 2011 season.

Aimee on the other hand is chomping at the bit for some racing. She has always called herself a runner more than a triathlete. But this year is different (last year she was different also but that involved IM St. George).

Ever since she ran with our friend Jen, she has been jonesing to do a half iron race.

I transferred my Little Smokies entry to the Great Buckeye Challenge. Unfortunately Aimee will be hosting her sisters baby shower that weekend. She was a little bummed about the conflict. So we are trying to figure out where she could race a half.

I am quite pleasantly surprised by her desire to do a half iron race. It's actually helping me get my mojo back.

So don't be changing my wife any time soon. I think we need each other right now.

When I first did GBC it was at Caesar Creek. I did an Oly at Buck Creek and the course was hilly. I have to check with some friends about the current GBC course.

I did Muncie last year. Personally not one of my favorite courses so I won't be going back. I have a friend who is going back for redemption though.

I've switched to Aquabike at OU.
