Run, Run As Fast As You Can!

In 2010 I kicked my running into high gear. Well, high gear for me!

I had started running on 2009. My first goal was to run a 5K. I caught the running bug and did several 5K's through the year.

2010 rolled around and I need new goals. The goal of 2010 was to run a half marathon. Which I did! Chris and I ran one together, even crossed the finish line together! It was so amazing and such a huge accomplishment for me.

I also ran a special 5K for the Good Samaritans. Which is near and dear to me. My high school best friend took her own life several years ago. Her sister has a team for their annual 5K fundraiser. This year we brought the little kids to. It is a great family day!

The craziest one was the Warrior Dash We had 40 people from our town doing it! We ran up a ski mountain, did obstacle like cargo nets, going through a pond, crawling in muddy water under barbed wire and jumping over fire (to name a few!)

SO THIS YEARS do a Triathlon!
And I am now registered for 2! One in June and one in September!

Holy cow.....what am I getting myself into? Now I need to learn to swim! I can swim....just not really swim!

I also need to learn to bike. Yes, I can ride a bike. But I need a road bike, not a mountain bike or one of my kids bikes.

So as of this weekend, my training begins!!!!!

Good luck on the triathlon! I have been running for a couple of years now, and want to sign up for the PF Changs marathon next year. I love to run! :)
