Has it seriously been this long since I’ve posted? Life has truly been a whirlwind for me the past couple weeks. I have a couple announcements and just want to get some things posted.
First of all to answer the question “Where the heck have you been?” Well, the answer to that would be “All over.” I’ve had an incredibly busy schedule. This blog is honestly a very high priority item for me outside of school. So that should tell you how much school work I’ve had. Tenting is over now, so I should have more time to post. I’ve been spending a lot of time on my homework and readings outside of class and beyond that I’ve needed time to unwind and de-stress. Between those two things and tenting, I basically had no free time. You can ask people I text or facebook message, they basically have barely heard from me the past couple weeks.
This Saturday, I have my first race with Duke Triathlon Club! That’s very exciting for me. I’ll be racing at the Hagan Stone Duathlon. The race is 5k run, 16 mile bike, 5k run. This should be a really fun race for me (especially because there is no swimming), although I haven’t done nearly enough training as I should have. If you want to know why, you clearly didn’t read the paragraph before this one. I’ll be doing a full race report at some point this month for it. I’ve also recently been elected as an officer for DTC (Marketing Director and Practice Coordinator)!
I also have recently published my first blog for NYCeWheels about the Tern Link D8. It’s a basic review of the bike and why I purchased it. I’m planning on doing a more technical review of this bike on this blog in a couple weeks.
As for my lack of posting, here’s what I’ve decided. Right now, I’m going to focus on two aspects of this blog: product reviews and race reports. I’ll post more than that when I have time, but I wouldn’t count on too much of that. One of the main reasons for this is because I think those are two of the main reasons people read this blog and that I’ve already told companies I’d be posting soon (in fact, I’m actually behind schedule). So, here’s to hopefully getting at least a review a week out and maybe even some extra posts in there now that tenting is done!
