Race Update: I've canceled my trip to North Carolina for the Blood Sweat and Gears timed century. It's disappointing for me to have to do this, because this was to be my big, peak race for the season. However, I never really thought the trip through when I first signed up. Because of my recent DVT's, I can't spend 2 days in the car traveling from FL to NC. Damnit.

That being said, there are some good local events this weekend that I am thinking of participating in. First, I need your advice.

There is the Lauren Katzenstein Memorial Ride on Sunday, June 28, in Lake Worth, FL. I am looking to do the 62 mile option. It's a charity ride for a good cause, with the rest stops, good company, jerks who try to race it, SAG support, etc.

There is also a Freedom 5k race in Deerfield, FL, put on by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Road Runners. I haven't done a stand alone 5k in a while, so I would like to see what I would get. I would probably bike commute to the race, too, since it's only about 20 miles away.

As an aside, I have run less than 10 times since January, and two of those times were in triathlons. Even though my 24 minute run split in this past weekends sprint triathlon was relatively slow, it's not too bad considering my lack of running miles.

My question is... what should I do? Should I do the 5k on Saturday, the 62 mile charity ride on Sunday? Should I do neither, and save the money, or should I do both? Cast your vote in the poll below!

Voting closes at 11:59pm on Friday, June 26. I'll do whatever option gets the most votes!

This youtube video comes from Walk the Line. I love the scene where Joaquin Phoenix sings Cocaine Blues in Folsom Prison. Here it is...
