Goodbye 2009

2009 ends brings along several PRs
*First sprint triathlon
*First Ironman
*First top 3 woman overall finisher
*Longest Run - 30.2 miles
*Longest consecutive days running in a row - 30
*Longest bike ride in one day - 203 miles
*Longest open water swim 2.4 miles (excluding IM)
*Olympic distance PR
*First real debilitating injury that kept me from running for 3 months

Part of my 3 week R&R from training came a hiatus from blogging. Blogging and training go hand in hand, a break from one brings a much needed break from the other.

I can now say that I am ready to put the pedal to the metal and get my tail back in gear. 3 weeks of WTF I want fitness, delicious oh-so toxic food and nightly libations is enough to throw this girl over the edge. I am yearning for clean eating, power and miles. I am ready for the long weekends and strict discipline. This is what I am made of, this is what I am.

Tues. Jan 5th my masochistic training plan begins.....with a partner from afar right by my side.
I have goals for each of the races below, but I will wait to disclose them until after race day :p
I've learned that some things are just best left to ones self.

2010 race calendar

"As I race through the valley of the shadow of death...."

There are 3 types of athletes in this world -
Those who train hard and make it happen
Those who train to get by and wonder why it happens
Those who don't put in the time and talk about what happen

Which kind of athlete are you?

Congrats on a stellar 2009 year. And especially on becoming an Ironman.

Good luck in 2010
