Hello my friends,
I have chosen to alter the presentation of my blog from a retrospective recollection of the promise to my father, and focus on the future that I am preparing for myself through the sport of Triathlon. One that includes health, happiness, greater self-awareness, and a focus on continuing on the path of exercise and the benefits that brings.
I just hit 49 a month ago and I have to tell you, I’m excited to compete in the 50-54 age group. I will never win a race, but I will keep plugging away–getting better and waiting out other age groupers to drop off. Eventually, I will be the only one in my AG to participate thus securing myself a win Yes, attrition is what I count on . In the meantime, I will continue to work hard and shoot for a personal best each time I am out there competing with myself in a race.
Speaking of races. What’s up for me this year?
State Farm 5K Fun Run (March some time)
The O’Rourke Triathlon (3rd weekend in April)
[A 10k in June--once I find it! YES, I'm going to go for it!]
Bryan Run to Overcome 5K (August)
The Olathe Women’s Triathlon (first Saturday in September)
Trek Breast Cancer Awareness 25 Mile Ride (October)
That’s what’s on the docket so far. In the meantime, I am still trying to hit my minimum goal for my book project on a family’s journey down the path of Alzheimer’s. Please consider sponsoring this project. It’s 100% tax deductible! SPONSOR ME HERE
In the meantime, I’m getting used to having really short hair (I donated 12″ to Pantene/American Cancer Society)! Woo hoo!
