I hope you had a Merry Christmas! I stole this post idea from Theodora, and thought I’d give a recap of my races this past year.
In January I started 6 weeks of swim lessons. You can see the 6th recap (and links to the other 5) here. I also completed 3 indoor triathlons. (And hope to do another on January 4th, 2015).
In April I had a fantastic Half Marathon PR (personal record!) I wasn’t properly trained for the race, so I was sore for multiple days after, but I highly recommend Run for the Lakes for a good early season half. (I won’t be participating this year due to a friend’s wedding).
I completed the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon in June, but my heart wasn’t in the race. Instead I focused my energy on my first triathlon! (note: the selfie with the bike was not taken during the race).
I completed another sprint triathlon in August and visited Zorbaz afterwards to celebrate. (Actually many workouts/races were centered around Zorbaz (Gull Lake) this year, and I like it that way!)
In September I tested my will power and road my bike to Walker, MN. It was 62 miles one way, and my butt has never been so sore. I’m hoping I get more long bike rides in next summer!
In my final race of 2014, I got another PR, this time in the 10k. It was a complete shock because my thoughts during the run were super negative.
Races I’m considering in 2015: Zorbaz Gull Lake Challenge, Grandma’s Marathon (maybe I could get a PR?, Superior Man 41.5, and local sprint triathlons. I haven’t signed up as I’m waiting to see what distances and locations will be best for me and my life.
