As I came down the shoot (ah-hem, chute) on Sunday, heading home from my first 70.3, I was thanking God and telling myself, “Don’t sign up for these shenanigans again.”
Well. Two days later, I decided to get out my credit card, and pay the fee for… 70.3 New Orleans in April 2012. Eeeek! Like childbirth, I forgot the pain of Miami within 48 hours… and I’m going in for seconds.
I’m an all or nothing gal. I need new goals to move forward. I don’t have time to waste. I’ll gain every stinking ounce back in 10 days at the rate I’m going.
Some people asked me if I was going to jump from half-Iron to full this coming year. I thought about it, I pondered it, and I asked Coach Monster (who is so awesome for not laughing at my crazy question). I’m going to have some fun races this coming year, and try and pull off New Orleans 70.3 and Augusta 70.3 if I can stay happy & healthy!
As a little fun comparison, and because everyone likes a good “Before and After” show and tell, I bring you a before and after show of me and the Expert.
I’m not ready to call these “after” photos, because they are just halfway there. Yes, a long way we’ve come….but a long way to go remains.
But our journey and these photos are just proof of what a little (okay…alot) of moving forward does.
And the only reason I don’t have a photo from Miami in the above….is because all my Miami photos are me acting crazy. See? Toldya.
