Tuckahoe Sprint Duathlon

So, here’s the thing. I registered for the Tuckahoe (NJ) Sprint Duathlon long before we jumped into the chemotherapy pool and luxury spa. My hope is that I should still be able to pull this off. The race is next week, 7/31, and is a few short miles from our house in Marmora NJ. It’s a local and low key fun little sprint that is too close to home to pass up. The challenge is that I “technically” won’t have the green light to run until 7/29. Which is fine for race day clearance, but it doesn’t allow for any kind of tune up training runs. Technically. So, I’ll need to get creative with that one way or another.

The delay in allowing me to run is solely based on the incision recovery of my surgically inserted chest port and not necessarily a product of the treatment itself. That’s a good thing because it means with my subsequent treatments, I will be “allowed” to run much sooner post treatment. So, I’m considering Tuckahoe a GO. I can get in a couple of rides between now and then and I’ll figure the run out. It’s the kind of race that I just need to do mentally, no matter how well I do it physically.

Stay tuned.
