I've been humming over my 2012 Race Schedule for months now.
The truth is- races scare me!
I get pre-race jitters worse than the average person. Really.
But I know I need to do things like that, for a few reasons:
*We only live once.
*I would rather say I tried than not do anything at all.
*It's good to break out of my comfort zone every so often.
*A race set on my calendar pushes me to keep moving/training.
*Once I feel I want to do something -even in the tiniest way- I can't get it out of my head until I try it.
March ~ Hypothermic-Half marathon.
May means my very first Marathon!
June ~ my annual Sprint Triathlon with my boys.
July ~ a one day 185km Bike Tour in northern Alberta.
August- my very first HALF IRONMAN~ Boulder, Colorado.
August also means a 42km Trail Race up and down and around a mountain.
September/October ~ thinking to end off with a couple of 10k or half-marathons.
One never knows what lies ahead, but if all goes well this is what the new year looks like for me.
Here's to many hours on this thing over the winter months:
And for some of my running, I'll be using these new things:
And if Santa is listening....I'll also be needing new race wheels for the bike, cycling shoes, a new swim suit and goggles, a few boxes of GU gels;), and a few massage appointments:D
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!
