Rev3 Rush Richmond – Day 1

May 28th, 2014

It’s been several months since my last post, and I have tons to share. But I’ll make my blog comeback with a race report from my only triathlon of the season, Rev3 Rush Richmond.

I haven’t really had any real-time updates since putting out my 2014 Fitness Goals in mid-January. Here we are a month later, and I have to say, I’m in a little bit of a weird place. I’m still enjoying lifting hard and working out, but progress has plateaued and motivation is waning.
