Happy Ironman Year!

Happy Year of the Ironman!  This is our time!

Speaking of our time . . . .  Guess what?  The California 70.3 is the end of March.  That is only 12.5 weeks away!  (Yes, that means your April races are coming up too!)  I need to get moving.  I have done a great job of eating and drinking myself into horrible shape.  UGH.  Why do I do this to my poor body?!  You would think I'd learn a lesson.  2011 was a horrible year for my motivation.

2012 is going to be better.  I feel it.  I plotted out a training program for my race and am diving in.  I'm trying to work on a race schedule too.  Planning is fun.  It is the execution I need to work on.

Two of my friends want to do runs.  One has a dream of running a 1/2 marathon and wants to do it with me.  The race is May 5th on the Navajo Reservation (Shiprock).  The other is San Diego's Rock n Roll Marathon on June 3rd.  A different friend attempted this one last summer and wants another go at it.  I need to figure out if I can do both.  Lots of options!

Hope you are all getting excited to race! Let the training begin!


  1. Kate, you're so funny!
    Yep, it's motivation time. We will be sexy beasts come this time next year!! And I may by done with school by May 5, and if so, I'm interested in the Shiprock run. I'll check. :)

  2. Can't wait to be a sexy beast. :) I can't believe how many races I've already signed up for...I think I may go crazy.
