2010 MODIFIED...Life happens...

Time....change....and listening to my body....

Of course I wanted to go into 2010 with some HUGE race schedule...SO I planned out the year with my focus on Boston and Ironman....I really hadn't looked at the training schedule, the time commitment or mentally where I was in my life...So much change happening around me. I underestimated how mentally I needed to be in my game...not just for a race BUT the training too..I also want to take in and feel what is happening around me on the path to a GREAT RACES!

That brings me to where I am today...trying to get life finalized along with my race schedule and rebuild my mental game.

2009 is a blur to me...I ran from a silly little thing called LIFE...easier to deal with things when you are training 24/7....and avoiding THINGS! 13 marathons, 5 half marathons and all the training along the way made it really easy to not think about the reality of life...

Lots of decisions...lots of change and a new race schedule...Mentally I am coming back...and I will be stronger physically this look for more PR's out of me....

Here is the NEW race schedule for 2010:
  • Boston April 19th...going for a sub 3:25
  • Wildflower Oly Tri May 2nd...Just a training race for IM
  • Ironman June 27th...Sub 12 is my goal...and not drowning of course...

***I will add on some half marathons in the mix...Goal is to run a sub 1:35 half. Probably in December in Vegas****

Life is GOOD... :)

  1. We're kindred spirits Shelly. Glad you're "coming back."

    Born Free!

  2. In it to win it, Chickie. Hope to be with you on some of the rides. Behind you 100%! See you soon, hopefully.

  3. Sorry to hear about the struggles you're going through, Shelly. But you are right to take a step back and re-prioritize and resort things. You will be better for it. I will look for some great results from you in 2010.

  4. Oh yeah it's all about the not drowning thing!

  5. Let me know when you plan on needing some extra motivation on the Boston course. I'll be there waiting to cheer you on!
