See that little purple box over to the right that says: Sharon’s Triathlon Training Fueled By Adult Essential Gummies.
My friend, Deborah Lowther and her husband created that company. Deb has been supplying me with all my vitamins for my training (and some for my kids). As someone who is not keen on swallowing large pills, these chewable vitamins are kind of a godsend. Plus you know they’re good when your kids remind you when you’ve forgotten to give them their vitamins.
I met Deb online and we became friends–that right there is the magic of Twitter. Deb has been training to do an Olympic Distance Triathlon (the length I bailed out on) and a Half Ironman. Essentially, the Olympic Distance is part of her Half Ironman training.
Deb and I get each other. We’re both moms (she has three kids), and we’re often shuttling them to sports and activities, while trying to fit in our training and our work. We email each other about our workouts and being afraid of our bikes (hers is way scarier than mine). Deb doesn’t just talk the talk, she walks the walk, swims the swim, runs the run, bikes the bike, and more.
Deb did her Olympic Distance race this past Sunday. Even though it was raining, and even though she swore she wouldn’t ride her scary bike in the rain, she did it. She swam 1500m, biked 40k, and ran 10k.
You should probably read it too.
Deb, you rock. I’m so glad you’re in my life.
You’re going to kick some serious ass at that Half Ironman.
