So, a new "race" is being added to my calendar for 2010 as my boyfriend proposed last Tuesday before Christmas! We had talked about it and had been making plans but he still managed to surprise me. I am very excited about our future together as he is my best friend, my love, and my biggest supporter all rolled into one great guy! Just to prove what a perfect guy he is, in addition to getting me a beautiful ring, I also got an incredible bike trainer that is way nicer than I had asked for. As it has been snowing here, it is a perfect time to get going on it. It will be great to get a jump start on my cycling for the year as well as shaping up for the wedding. We are thinking of mid-July so that he will be off from work (teacher) and I can still get my favorite races in! :)
Whew, things get crazy around the holidays! Or at least, that is the excuse I am using for not having blogged recently. The truth is, there has not really been anything exercise blog worthy going on. While I am still swimming and playing tennis, all other training has gone out the window. I am not overly sad about it right now, but am starting to miss it which is a good sign! Since I have not been doing a lot lately, I thought this would be a good time to talk about goals for 2010. More specifically, my goal races for 2010. There will be some smaller races thrown in here, but these are the most important ones.
I am considering an Olympic length triathlon too, but I have not nailed down which one. I will probably do a few other sprint triathlons as well, but the three above are the ones I would really like to do well at.
I am really excited about 2010. I really feel like it is going to be my year to accomplish a lot. It is a big year age wise as I will be turning 30 so that is exciting too!
