2015 Goals – A Year in Review

Swim 75 miles or 132,000 yards, Bike  5,000 miles, and run 1,500.

Swim: 135,056 or 76 miles ! Yeah, I met my goal.
Bike: 2,684, bummer – goal not met.
Run: 802 bummer – goal not met.

As I was planning my 2015 race calendar I thought these were all possible. And, by living in Tucson for the year I would be able to train all year. Well, it didn’t quite work out the way I planned in January. But that is the way life is: things happen, life gets in the way, nothing goes as planned – and it’s OKAY. I still believe in making goals and plans.

I did a lot of really fun things all year: Egg Nog 5K, Ironman Texas, Oro Valley AZ Sprint Triathlon, Olympic distance triathlon in Tempe, Blood, Sweat, and Beer trail marathon in Las Vegas, Mississippi Blues marathon in Jackson, Surf City Marathon in Huntington Beach CA.

I traveled a lot for work: Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, and Minnesota.

I saw the Grand Canyon.

And, I moved back to Grand County, Colorado.

It was a very good year!

My 2016 Goals & Adventures are still intact, however I added one more event that I signed up for last night – solo long course at the Steamboat Pentathlon in March.

August – Leadville 10K
November – Ironman Arizona

This morning it was -20 so I am hoping that it starts to warm up so I can start running outside again. I need to figure out a mountain bike and downhill skis for the pentathlon. I have a lot of work to do to get ready for races this year. I’m excited to be back in Colorado and get back into racing this year.

Mostly I feel thankful. Thankful for an awesome family. Thankful for my friends in Colorado and Arizona. Thankful for a fulfilling job. Thankful for my health so I can train and race and see the world. I'm thankful to be a part of the Triple Threat Triathlon Team. And thankful to be a TNFLocal

Happy New Year!
