Starting off the New Year

Happy New Year All!!!!
It's been awhile since I have blogged, but I decided today to come out of hiding.
I started 2013 with a fun 5k yesterday and a bike ride around Hains Point.
The 5k was a small race and only cost $5 to get into! I loved the cost and the low key race. I actually wish more races were like this. At any rate though my running was less than exciting. I have been struggling big time lately with it. I keep getting slower rather than faster and can't seem to get it together during a race, which sucks. Even though I had fun I was still flustered at the end of day and talked poor M's ear off about it.
Maybe I will be able to get it together by Feb 9th for my 14k or by March 16th for my half. I would really hate to have two more races were I am no where even close to my PR. But then again all running is good running and I always need to remember that.
Anyhow, 2013 will be well about the same as 2012. ha. My main focus will be on getting myself across the finish line at IM Mount Tremblant along with learning how to spell it so I don't have to look it up every time :) This year though I would like to improve on my IM time instead of just worrying about trying not to die. In addition, I would like to keep a positive outlook about training and not let a bad training day or race get me down. There are worse things in the world besides having a bad day. So yeah. Stay positive.
Well I hope everyone had a great 2012 and started off the new year with a smile.
Happy Wednesday All :) 


  1. Just keep running; I think once you get on a regular training cycle for the half marathon, you'll start racing fast again.

  2. Good luck! I think the hard work you put in will totally pay off with your goal.

  3. Looking forward to following you during your training in 2013! Happy New Year!
