What are your goal races this year?

Getting ready for a run!

Ernest Hemingway said, “It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”

In 2013 I had some fun events! Race trips were not just about competing but enjoying time with friends.

Surf City Half Marathon

Last years schedule included Surf City Half Marathon, Galesburg Half Marathon, Luray TriathlonFinger Lakes Triathlon and Iron Girl Boulder Sprint Triathlon.

This year I began with the Surf City Half Marathon in Feb. and ran a 1:40:58.

After Surf City Half Marathon I started doing longer run sessions and joined a run group to help me with my speed work once a week. Last month I started integrating my bike and swim workouts more consistently to prepare for a Half Ironman this year.


 Here are three AWESOME races I will be doing in 2014!

Beautiful and challenging course in a great town, don’t miss this one!

I am planning on adding more events but right now I’m looking forward to returning to Run Galesburg Run with the goal of beating my 1:35 finish time from last year!
