So I suck at this…

Blogging that is.  I am so shy…ok, not really.  I couldn’t even keep a straight face while typing that line.  But seriously, blogging is work and with all that has been happening over the past 11 months I’m seriously lacking in the blogging department.  I follow many bloggers and admire their ability to balance life and blogging.  They are rock stars in my book!  It’s all about balance, right?

Balancing life

So a quick recap of the year:

I ran 3 half marathons and 2- 5K’s.  My half marathons were in April, June, and October (was originally in September but due to the huge fire in Yosemite we were socked in with smoke).  I had the best time on the first 21k and then the other 2 were right around the same time within minutes. But no PR.  I am so ok with that, really.  This year was a learning year.  And boy have I learned a lot!!

I also left my long time career in state service of 20 years to private sector employment.  Talk about a change! I accepted a job that would allow me to start exercising a bit more of my education and skill set.  I now am engaged emotionally, mentally, and physically in my new career path.  Onward and upward to opening up my own business.

I have expanded into the world of TRIATHLONS!! yes, you read that right.  I have evolved from a runner to triathlete.

I have filled up 2014 with an amazing schedule of races.  I will work my way up from mini-triathlon distance to Ironman in September 2014.  With the support of my coach and endurance running team, I can only succeed at these goals!

Training as you can imagine has ramped up and to be honest it can feel like a 2nd job putting in all the training and hours.  But I LOVE it! So it is one of the reasons why I have put off blogging but seriously there is so much to share now right? So I will try to achieve balance in adding the blogging back in because this journey is one that I is fun to share!

Dream big!

Dream big!

With my BIG dream ahead of me in 2014, I invite you to be part of my journey evolving into more than what I ever thought I could be.  Just as a reminder, this was me 4 years ago in 2009:

    You suck at nothing…

    • Why thank you…it’s tough keeping up on all the ‘cool’ things to do like blog 😉 But I think it’s just another thing to build into the schedule that is very worth while!! Right? 🙂
