    Hi there! Is that Sheraton Centre pool 25m? And more importantly, is it in T.O.?As I’ve previously mentioned, my tri training is on complete hiatus; my bike is in my sister’s basement in Ohio, but I’m planning on going to Ohio for a family reunion in August, and I shall bring my bike back. I’m not working right now, except working on finishing my thesis by mid-Sept, once I start working full-time and making un peu d’argent I’m planning on joining the Toronto tri club…what are your thoughts on that club? Up until now I’ve found that I enjoy training the most in a group of people…except on long runs, which I prefer doing solo.I shouldn’t really classify myself as a ‘triathlete’ since I haven’t raced since 2002 but this long vacation from triathlon is just getting me more and more excited to jump back into serious training and racing. I’m planning on doing just olympic distance next summer, and progressively go longer after a nice solid year of training and racing. My technique and transitions definately need lots and lots of practice. Sorry for the super long post — I just am excited to get back into it. I understand what triathletes mean when they say triathlon is “like a drug.” At least that’s what it felt like when I used to race. Have a great Thursday!
