Ok!! So this year so far has been a crazy year!! I have maintained my weight between 180-185. I am happy with that for now but I still want to get lower. Back in May I had the opportunity to run the Flying Pig Marathon with some great friends!! Even though my longest run was only 12 miles before the race I am so glad I went out there and did it!! I ended up getting my second fastest time 5:17. It would have been faster but I started cramping so bad I could only walk the last few miles. If it wasn't for Karen, Tammie Peach, and Michelle I would have never made it!! I am so thankful for them!!
Now let me bring you up to date, I have completed my first Half Ironman 70.3 Muncie back in July. It was awesome!! I used it as a training day for my big race in August. I completed my race in 7:36. I was not even tired when I finished. I was not even sore the next day!! Now to me that's amazing!! I didn't want to over do it and scare myself away from doing a Full Ironman. My plan was to take it easy and just finish. I did it!! Next year I want to do it again and race it!!
In 4 days I will be stepping up to the starting line of Louisville Ironman 140.6 miles. Yes!! I decided back in January I wanted to train for it. It was my little secret that only a handful of people knew. Once it started getting closer I started talking more about it to others. Everybody has been so supportive and excited for me. It's hard to believe this year I have completed my 6th marathon, a half ironman, 2 century bike rides, 2.4 mile open water swim, and now I am going for a FULL IRONMAN!! This year has flown by.
