Time for a Change!

I took some time to look at my Spark page today and realized that it desperately needed some updating! I have met all of the long term goals that I set for myself when I joined Sparks, including running in, and finishing the Chicago Marathon four times, the Cincinatti Flying Pig Marathon, and the Goofy Challenge back to back half and full marathon! I have also completed 3 triathlons this summer and am training for my 1st half iron distance next June. It's hard ...
Time for a Change!

I took some time to look at my Spark page today and realized that it desperately needed some updating! I have met all of the long term goals that I set for myself when I joined Sparks, including running in, and finishing the Chicago Marathon four times, the Cincinatti Flying Pig Marathon, and the Goofy Challenge back to back half and full marathon! I have also completed 3 triathlons this summer and am training for my 1st half iron distance next June. It's hard to believe all of the changes that I see in myself both physically and mentally. I am much tougher and stronger than I ever imagined! It seems so strange to look back to my previous introduction that stated "I only ran when something or someone was on fire!" Now it has become a part of me and what I do. I sure hope that I can keep this up!

Hi My name is Becky. I just rejoined spark and started training again for a triathlon. I hope to complete my first in 2013. I would love any training advice or tips you might have for a newcomer

Congrats on your masters! I too work in education. It's a love/hate field to work in :).

Jean,
Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment on my blog. I'm feeling much better after that little "pity party". Got up today at 5:45am and ran an hour on the tread! I feel great and energized (though sleepy when i started).

Hey, Jean! Remember a couple weeks ago when you commented on my blog?? Yeah, I know that's a long time to remember... anyway, I just want to thank you so much for taking the time to read my story and for giving me such enthusiastic support! You have been doing so much lately, I am in awe of you!! So cool that you rocked your first tri, and then went right on to do a second one!

Best wishes on your continued training!
