Off to San Francisco – Alcatraz!!!

I’m going back to San Francisco for another Tri-California race on Sunday. I will be racing the San Francisco Triathlon at Alcatraz. My entire family is flying in to see me, even 9 month old Carter and his mom (my sister) Susan. This course is amazing. Probably the most beautiful urban race in existence, so I’m hoping my family can get some great pictures of me. Better than this one from the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon in 2008, which I ran with an injured foot and no pink Rudy Project sunglasses – I still had the fastest time up the Sand Ladder!

I would write more, but I’m off to the airport with a book bag full of books! I started an MBA program at the University of Colorado this week, and suddenly I have no problem keeping myself occupied. My first three courses are “Leading and Managing in Changing Times”, “Intro to Accounting”, and “Marketing Strategy”. My Management prof seems really cool. Our first assignment is to write a self assessment, in which we point out our own flaws, our goals, our strengths, and how we plan to become better people through self-management and life balance. Step 1 to life balance: enjoy life. (check!)
