Tri Something New…

I’ve said before I need to hold myself accountable and write some goals down.  What better place to do it than on the internet for all the world to see?! Right?

Well, here it goes…

1) This year, I WILL break 2 hours for a half marathon.  Phew!  That actually felt really empowering to write!  “I WILL”, not “I’ll try” or “maybe if I get lucky and the running gods are on my side”…  Nope. Dammit – I WILL break the 2 hour mark or die trying… (ok, so that last part is a bit of an exaggeration but I would be really really sad if it didn’t happen this year).  My current PR is 2:09 so I just have to get off my lazy a.. put in the work and I will do it!

2) I am also determined to compete in and complete my first ever triathlon.  And to motivate myself (and because I’m a cheap ass thrifty and don’t like spending money on things I don’t use) I just bought my fancy new tri suit from this fantastic website. LOVE LOVE LOVE the color although I’m not sure how forgiving it’ll be :\


I seriously love this site.  I just bought a new 2XU tri suit for $75!!  They have such good prices – and it’s not just tri gear… it’s running, watches, cycling, clothes, boots, shoes, the list goes on and on.  Anywho, I’m signed up for a swim class next weekend, and the triathlon is in March – it’s indoor and incredibly relaxed (from what I hear) so it’ll be a good event to get my feet wet. haha – pun totally intended. I crack myself up…

Currently those are my two fitness goals.  There’s more floating around in my head, but they aren’t ready for the world to see yet…

What are your goals for 2013?  What do you do to stay on track and accomplish them?
