90 Day Streak Mark

I know my streak pales in comparison to, say, the ones on this site, but back in February I did not expect it to last this long. I still don't imagine it will last a year, but who's to say? All I know is things have been getting much crazier now that springtime is here. It's going to take a lot to keep my training on track.

As an exciting sidenote, I'm going to Miami with some friends and I'm hoping to do the Tri-Miami while I'm there. I haven't signed up yet because I'm trying to figure out what to do about a bike. Airlines will generally let you check them in a cardboard bike box, but they charge a $150 fee. If I got a hardside bike case, I could check it as a regular suitcase, unfortunately these can cost anywhere from $200-$500. Granted, it's reusable, but still quite pricey. The other alternative is renting a road bike. It's sort of dependent on whether or not I could rent a road bike specifically. I may not be a pro, but I also don't want to pay the fee to race if all that's available is a cruiser.

So that's what's happening, briefly. Streak summary: NYRR Run and Learn 4/25, Phoebe Loop 4/26, 5k on Upper West 4/27, Herald Square to home 4/28, Phoebe Loop 4/29, Phoebe Loop 4/30, Midtown to Kips Bay 5/1, Phoebe Loop 5/2. Too many Phoebe Loops. The bigger problem, though, is that there's not enough time in the day!
