Happy New Year! It’s 2014 and I cannot believe how fast 2013 went. I am proud of 2013 and sad to see it go but I am also looking forward to the opportunities and goals that 2014 will present. My first triathlon is less than a month away along with the packed winter and spring of the Shelbyville Triathlon Series, Louisville Triple Crown of Running, Kentucky Derby Festival miniMarathon, and the Derby Festivals’s Inaugural Tour de Lou, a 35 mile bike ride through the home city of the world famous Kentucky Derby.
2013 brought more miles my way than any other in my life, but that was cut drastically short after a debilitating knee injury in November that reduced my mileage to near zero from Nov 10 through the end of the year. The worst part was the lost opportunity to be coached by Scott Fishman due to the injury, one that has me bummed still to this day.
So 2014 has a lot of big plans and goals, first Tri, first race series, my 3rd half marathon and the plan for my first half Ironman in Muncie, IN in June. Here’s to 2014 and the memories she will bring. I hope everyone exceeds their goals and makes the best of 2014. I look forward to reading and interacting with each of you this year.
