New Year, time for a change

Well good bye 2011 and hello 2012 and boy did you come in with a bang! Where did 2011 go?? I think I'm still trying to find some of it if you look at my nurse's notes (ie-still 2011 with error thru it).  I went back and looked at my goals that I set forth for myself this year and a few I met, one I will always be working on, and the others just fell apart for reasons.

In 2011 I was lucky to have only 2 different jobs verses the 4 possible and they both were only 90 minutes apart when I needed to more which made my life even easier! Up until May, I spent the winter in Tuscon, AZ. I was sick for awhile and then got injured while training for RnR Dallas. I'm not one to just sit still so I used P90x/Turbo Fire/Rev abs to keep me in shape for the small amount of time I had off of running. Then I got back on that horse and was at my fav local running store weekly looking/trying on shoes and trying to figure out what happened. 

Amongst this time, my personal biz I had decided to put away due to personal reasons. It wasn't working for me but I did and have managed to figure out who my "real" friends are. If you know the song "Find out who your friends are" by Tracy Lawrence you will know what I am talking about-otherwise google it.

I came into Phoenix during the HOTTEST summer on recorded (yay me!) which killed me for training. It was nice to wake up at 4:55 am to see it was only 95*-no, I'm kidding. It got old after a month. Good thing I had easy access to a pool-but even that was hard to be at for a while. I survived-learned that I needed to drink ALOT more water and watch my electrolytes or else....

Trying to race locally??? yeah...I gave that up. I love to travel too much. I went to SD for a sprint tri which was awesome and then to St Louis and Savannah for 2 half marathons. I had a blast.  I think I am one to always travel for races. 

So..goals for 2012
1.HIM..late summer to fall
2.Ragnar CO-I'm co-captain!!
4. probably run 2 half marys along the way too (the 1st Jan 15th)
5. Running Coaching clinic
6. Make it back to California...some how..

Here's to a great and better 2012
