I know I posted a blog earlier today. But I had to share my exciting news. So, I have always been the one in the family that is a little bit crazy. If there is a challenge, I go for it. If there is a mountain, I climb it. If there is a marathon, I run it. Well you get the there is this Ironman, and I do it! So I have had this dream since I was a little girl. I dreamed that I would do an Ironman Triathalon some day. An Ironman consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 Mile Bike Ride and a 26.2 Marathon all in one day. Well the first Ford Ironman to come to Utah has arrived. It will be in St. George Utah in May 2010. I have been thinking about it and I have been wondering and I have been thinking about it and I have been wondering. The idea of it makes me want to throw up, but when I picture the finish, I get excited like a little kid in a candy store. So I have this dream, and I am going to accomplish it. My mom told me today that I graduated from marathon running, so it is time to go for it! If I am really crazy to attempt this, it does not matter now..I am signed up! As of 4:45 pm today. I am an offical entrant. It cost almost 600 dollars but I am so stoked! I want to inspire anyone who has a goal to do something, just go for it! Don't fear it, live for it!

Training will begin in October, I can do this! Wish me luck! Its my year! I will be an Iron Woman!

An Update! It's time to blog again!

It has been so long since I blogged. My life has been filled with new things to keep me busy. I have been working like a crazy woman, which is nothing new. I also planned a successful fundraising event at Life Time Fitness that I was very proud of myself for accomplishing. I decided that event planning is something that I will not go into in the near future. I did have a blast while doing it but now that it is done, I do have alot of stress off of my shoulders. I am glad that I could do this for the MS Foundation. Now the fun part, I get to go ride the MS ride at the end of June. What else is new, I am now incorporating a new healthy way of life with eating. I have been doing so well, and I love the changes I am seeing and feeling physically. Summer is arrived, the pools are opening up, and the mountains are calling my name to take my bike out for some many rides ahead. I have already completed Big Cottonwood Canyon and the St. George century this season, and hope to get out this weekend. I have a busy summer of training for upcoming events. I am doing most of these events with friends and I cannot wait! The Wasatch Back Relay is at the end of June as well as the MS Ride. Training now for the St. George Marathon and Lotoja. I am currently debating whether or not I should sign up for the St. George Ironman that will be happening next May 2010. Decisions, Decisions! Most of you would say that one should not be a hard one to make, but I am crazy! I guess I want to inflict more pain upon myself.

Dating life...well to be continued. Life is good! I love where I am right now, and I feel so happy about the direction I am taking. I feel like right now I have some very imporant decisions to make that will be very important for my future. So much to learn from right now. I must stay the course, and keep on climbing those tough mountains. I know that in the end I will be the apple on top! Happy Summer Everyone!
