I started to get excited about planning my 2011 race schedule. Now, don't get the wrong idea I'm not one of those crazy, obsessive runners. I do it for pure enjoyment. This year I'm looking for different races around the country and the Chicago area. As much as I love my beloved Chicago I'm ready to pound the pavement and see some new destinations.
One goal this year is to try a triathlon. I did my first marathon last year, the Chicago Marathon, which was an amazing experience and will do again this year. It was a last minute decision last year and my training was horrible, my finish time even worse, but to cross the finish line felt like I won the lottery considering where I started in this journey. I always hate the phrase "if I can do it anyone can do it", but I have to say it's true. If you have two feet and physically able you can do it and it doesn't matter how fast the point is you did it. Ok, enough from the soap box.
