Confessions of a 1406.2 mile couple.....

So this blogpost is WAY past due, I have been kind of busy training, watching Breaking Bad, researching races in far away places, and trying to convince Jason to get me a platypus.

During our "peak" season Jason and I raced one thousand four hundred and six point two miles. In 12 weeks. That is an average of 117 miles of racing a week. The 12 weeks in between racing doesn't even begin to compare to the countless weeks spent preparing for such big events. I actually think it is EASIER for us to both be training for long stuff. That way neither of us are to blame for our house looking like this.....

Athletes need fuel. We need LOTS of fuel! And his and her blenders. Double smoothie time!

Dining Rooms are for people who sit down for dinner. Training rooms are for people who train for dinner!

You never know when the world is going to end and you will need 500 water bottles! 

2 people. 1 run. Lots of bottles! 

No true triathlete couple is complete without a garage full of bikes. Road, tri, mountain, track, we have it all....and sadly this isn't the entire collection! 

A rare occasion where we are out after dark!

It's definitely a unique life. One that might not work for everyone, but it definitely works for us! And now that I have finally gotten all the bottles clean we are both back to 20+ hour training weeks. I could complain about it but who am I kidding? I love it. Now please remind me of that in 10 weeks!
