It's Good to have Goals

This weekend Steve and I started working on our 2011 race calendars.  For the last 2 years, it's been all about volume for me.  How many races can I jam into the calendar?  We've had a blast and visited great places.  My marathon medal collection is fantastic.  No regrets, but it's time to adjust the focus. When you race constantly you sacrifice performance.  Also, we're both worn out by all the weekend trips.

Here are the goals for 2011.

  • 1 ultramarathon.
  • Ironman California 70.3 and Vineman 70.3  (Hidden agenda item - I want to be at my goal weight by Ironman California.)
  • 1 endurance cycling event.

I'm also planning to do the Lehigh Valley Half Marathon just so I can visit my folks. Other than that, it's all low key and local.  San Diego has tons of half marathons and triathlons.  Those will make the calendar if they don't conflict with Steve's events, family stuff or the retention of our sanity.


  1. I want to see a picture of your medal collection. I bet it looks like Fort Knox!

    You continue to be ambitious - amazing goals for next year. I continue to be impressed! Good luck....

  2. Roxie - you can see my finishers medals anytime you want. They are stored in our guest bedroom - Hint, Hint!
