As a very independent woman (sometimes this causes some scuttle in our household), I enjoy celebrating Independence Day!! In honor of Independence Day falling on Thursday of this last week, I decided to do a week long celebration and document my Red, White and Blue week through photography.
Monday, July 1, 2013: Today was a day in red…
Tuesday, July 2, 2013: I went for white and blue today…
Wednesday, July 3, 2013: My day in Blue
Thursday, July 4, 2013: Today was a rest day…we had a very fun and busy day to celebrate Independence Day!!
Friday, July 5, 2013: Our Century Ride…I’m in white and blue today
Saturday, July 6, 2013: Today was a day in blue (and black) while donning my red and white Mojo…
With today marking the start of the second half of 2013, I decided to really reflect on where I’ve come from, where I’m currently at and where I want to be.
Let’s start with where I’ve come from…Prior to January 2010, I had coached myself through 8 marathons, 8 half marathons, multiple 5K, 10K, 10 mile and 20K road races, 4 triathlons and qualifying for the Boston Marathon. I decided it was time to take my fitness and training to the “Next Level” and in January 2010, I hired Coach Julie with Zoom Performance Endurance Coaching to help me achieve my fitness goals. This was easily one of the best decisions I have ever made!! She has helped transform me into the training/racing monster that I have become. 🙂
Where I’m currently at…Since January 1, 2013 I have:
swam 31.5 miles
biked 1095 miles
ran 441 miles
completed 409.3 miles of brick workouts (Bike/Run)
raced 110 miles (that includes both running events and triathlons)
completed 34.5 hours of strength training
completed 17 hours of yoga
set a PR of nearly 27 minutes on the Ironman 70.3 event
become much more mentally and physically strong
become a much more well-rounded individual
Where I want to be…I have many more races I am planning to participate in and many race goals that I hope to achieve. Some of these races have dates attached to them, while others don’t…
