The End Is Near…

Can you believe there are only 10 weeks left in 2009?  72 days to be exact.  That’s right kids…the winter holiday of your religious choice is right around the corner!  I know, I know, it isn’t even Halloween yet and I am talking about 2010 (have you seen the stores….christmas trees already…really?!?!?) but the truth is, it is going to be here before we know it! 

In just over a month, my race season will officially be over.  Even though I started this journey and raced in 2008, I didn’t really feel like I had a “season” so to speak.  This year, I really feel like I was all immersed in my training and took on a full season of racing.  In 2008, I participated in 8 total races- one triathlon, two 8k’s, a 10k and four 5k’s.  By the end of 2009 I will have participated in twelve races- 2 triathlons, 1 duathlon, 4 half marathons, 1 ten-miler, 1 8k and 3 5k’s!  I don’t in any way want to downplay 2008 because it was where it all began and I am as proud of those accomplishments as any, it is just that this year was a little more personal.  I started this blog, trained on a schedule, raced new distances and most importantly, I feel like in 2009 I really changed for the better where my health and lifestyle are concerned.

In an effort to celebrate this hell of a year being almost over, I want to continue to focus on 2009 reflections and my goals and plans for 2010.  So from here on out for the next 10 weeks, one post a week will be similar to this- dedicated soley to looking back and/or moving forward.  I haven’t decided if I will do this on a designated day of the week yet and as clever as I am (and humble too!) I haven’t been able to think of a catchy name either.  Ideas???
