Yesterday I started my journey on becoming an Ironman. May 19, 2012 I will be ‘racing’ Ironman Texas with Team RWB. Needless to say it means I’ve taken up a part time job in training for this endeavor. I’m excited and scared and know that sacrifices will be made. I’m sure many will not have a clue as to why I will be putting in so many hours but they’ll get it, sooner or later… or maybe I should just have them watch this:
One day two, I’m already battling a migraine from hell… but I’m pushing through it. Tomorrow, all will be right with the world as the gym I go to opens back up for the spring semester (Thank goodness!) – although we all know the gym will be packed for the next month and then it will simmer down.
So as it is the beginning of the new year, here are some of my goals (I hate the term resolution):
- Finish my Ironman
- PR in my 1/2 and full marathon times
- PR in my fall 70.3 race – looking at Rev3 Cedar Point so family can be there!
- Remain as injury free as possible although I am starting out with my runner’s knee still being temperamental
- Enjoy each day to the fullest while having the best year ever!
