Keep Trekkin'

One of my friends told me that she was having a conversation with another friend of ours, about me. She told me that they both are just waiting for me to announce that I am going to do a full Iron Man!!! I laughed because, at this time, I have absolutely NO interest in ever putting my body through that type of event. For now, I am happy to be able to say I have done a marathon (with plans to do a few more) and a half iron man (with plans to do at least one more).

This is all amusing to me especially since I was found saying to one of my friends while running a 4 mile race, that I am done! I have no interest in running a half marathon this fall AT ALL!!! She told me that it was OK, I didn't have to do the half this fall. I think she also asked me what my plan was, to which I replied, I'm going to go home and register (of course)!

Then, on Saturday, as I was having the most enjoyable day bumming around with a couple of my friends, I heard myself telling them, and others, that I am totally sick of exercise! I also said that all I want to do is lay on my couch with Dukie and stare at the TV.

I think it is appropriate to say that the post marathon blues apply to a half iron man as well. And I'm suffering from those blues big time!!! Since the half iron, I can honestly say I have been a little funky. Ask my friends and they will likely tell you that I haven't been myself since that race. The past couple of weeks I posted about my struggles. What can I say, sometimes you simply can't shake it all that quickly!

Rather than fall into my funkiness I am goal setting. Here is where I am at:

Greenswell Wellness Triathlon and Duathlon (Lewis Center, Ohio) - July 14 - As a relay! I'm riding!!!
Fall into Winter 13.1 (Granville, Ohio) - November 9 - I'm hoping it is cold for this race!

In advisement from my favorite sister in law, I will simply keep trekkin'!!! And because of that I will have more of these memories to come!!!

And of course,  the infamous full marathon picture!

  1. I love that you cured the blues by whipping out some cash and registering for a race! Awesome! You will do great - as you always do!
