Jackson my faithful greeter...mind you it is COLD here.
I started training again in January after a good block of time off. I felt excited to be back into a groove and routine. We started slow, I was coming off being sick and not training and the combination left me only a little in the tank if that. I had spent the most of late November and December swimming my little heart out but that was it.
Well my battery is recharged and I am ready to go! I have picked out a few races this spring. A half marathon in April and a 70.3 in June. I am looking forward to using those as stepping stones to my big race at Lake Placid this year. I have a bunch of friends racing and I am looking forward to toeing the line for my first Ironman ( Ryan will tell you my ONLY).
The treadmill has proved to be a godsend with the kids, ice and snow. I ran my first run outside in CT this weekend and it was nice to get out in the cold fresh air again.
