Actually, they do sound a lot like my goals!
Last New Year's Eve I wrote out these objectives, and I still think they're pretty good ones:
- Train intelligently and effectively for an iron-distance triathlon while keeping my life in balance with my other responsibilities.
- Get to the Ironman Florida starting line (Nov 4) in the best shape of my life.
- Enjoy every race day as a celebration of my training, bringing away lessons from each race.
And before I forget (yes, it's natural to become a teensy bit self-absorbed in these things) GOOD LUCK and PLEASANT TAILWINDS to all my fellow athletes and friends who will be at the starting line with me on Saturday - and THANK YOU SO MUCH to all those volunteering on race day, too! I couldn't do it without you all there too!
Also thank you again for the good wishes that I've received from everyone back at home. Thanks for following along - I do appreciate it greatly!!
Still, I can't believe that I'm missing the World Championship Punkin' Chunkin' this coming weekend for a trip to sunny Florida for a silly old triathlon.
