It's official. I'm hooked. I'm by no means the fastest, but I LOVE the feeling of racing, and running, and finishing!
I love challenging myself to do a little better every time.
My last race of 2012 is this Thanksgiving. I still can't quite fathom that I went from "Me, running? You're crazy!" to "When's the next one??" in 6 months.
My first race EVER was June 29, and I'm proud to have competed three 5k's, two 3k's, and a triathlon since then.
As 2013 approaches, my goal for next year is two triathlons and seven or eight 5k's, March-November. One of my sons will also be doing his first triathlon in August. :-)
It's going to be a GREAT year!
