Happy New Year to you all!
Jim and I have declared 2006 to be the "Year of the Phoenix" in our household. The phoenix is a mythical creature celebrated across many cultures as a bird that "rises from the ashes every 500 years to begin anew".
And so we are choosing to use 2006 to "rise anew" - strong and vibrant towards a healthy, happy new year.
Living STRONG all the way...
I have struggled with making Goals in the last few months but since 2006 is a new beginning, I thought "jump in with both feet and make some long term commitments.
My 2006 Goals:
1. Loose 35 pounds of fat / Gain 10 pounds of muscle (min)
2. One Race/Event per Month (Swim,Bike or Run) - 12 events
3. Complete Half Ironman Distance Triathlon (2nd race at this distance)
2006 12-Event List
So far I have 3 months covered but I need to do some research to fill up the other 9 month and keep a little bit of balance if I can....
Feb - Myrtle Beach 1/2 Marathon
Apr - Cherry Blossom 10 Miler
June - Bike Virginia (250-350 miles BIKE TRIP)
I have a few ideas for other races but I need to coordinate with Jim's upcoming events. Looks like it is time to have a "Calendar Pow-Wow" again already!
