2011 Goals

I'm somewhat reluctant to write goals. I'm not feeling like a rock star lately and I'm trying to avoid setting myself up for failure. It's been a rough few months and I'm trying to get back on my feet. But that said, I feel compelled to put something out there to force myself to try harder to do better. So here goes something...

Pesky 5K
Oh how I hate you. This year, I want to lock in a sub 24.

Mr. Marathon
You use me and abuse me. But I still keep coming back to you for more. I think I'd like to sub 4 you.

Sprint Tri
You are my new fling. We went on a little date in October and I had so much fun. We're going to do this again in March on the same course and I would like to shave 5 minutes off my bike. Not that I don't like spending much time with you. I really do, but I'd like to stand on the podium.

Olympic Tri
You don't scare me. We have not met yet, but you don't scare me. We'll see each other in June and I'll see how much I like you.

70.3 Half Ironman Austin

I admit it. You are a little intimidating. Right now you are bigger and stronger than me. But I'll be ready for you, that I promise you. I know you have big hills. Something called the quad killer. But pain is temporary and pride is forever. So I'll take your hills. Bring it. But I won't let you abuse me for more than 7 hours.

So there you go. 2011 in a nutshell. Stay tuned.
