Friday, January 13th - Beth releases her race schedule for her debut pro triathlon season.

Monday, January 16th - 13-time undefeated Ironman champion and 4-time Ironman World Champion Chrissie Wellington announces she is taking a year off from competing in Ironman.

Coincidence? You be the judge.

Beth's next target:

(For the non-triathlon people, this is Mirinda Carfrae--probably the 2nd best triathlete in the world)

As a side note, my college roommate one year was from
Norwich in England. It turns out Chrissie Wellington is from Norfolk, which is the county that Norwich resides in. Small world, eh?

Chrissie was sooooo afraid of my 10:11 IM PR. *ONLY* about 2 hours slower than hers... ;)

I had to google her to see why?? The whys are always kinda neat. I have a feeling something is up. Why would you retire on top?? Jordan did it, and boxers do it all the time. She gave kind of a generic answer. My guess she is tired.

Undefeated at that distance?? WOW!! I saw her Marathon time too at last year's Kona. Ummm WHAT?? LOL

Some crazy people out there. :)
