Stuck in my head....

7 months, 5 marathons, 1 year to prepare. I read somewhere a long time ago that you have to have a goal and just losing weight wasn't a goal. It's too vague and unformed. What has always worked for me in the past has been racing. When I was running and doing triathlons I was in the best shape ever. I had already decided that I was getting back into racing next year starting with the 10k on New Year's Day. But the thought of really pushing myself, really striving towards something that seems almost impossible, really appeals to me. I would have to push myself really, really hard. I would need to lose weight and get into awesome shape. There would be absolutely no excuses for missing workouts and I would have to work harder then I've worked in my life. I want to do triathlons next year but my serious focus would be on running. I am seriously considering it. On my run today, passing the manufactured homes they just put up for the seniors, it was running around my brain. It's a fabulous goal that just might be what I need to really push me.

Ramblings

Don't really have a whole lot to write about today, so it will probably be a bunch of unconnected ramblings. Tomorrow is my birthday. ...
