Happy New Year--and the big resolution [Dec. 31st, 2012|07:35 pm]
Farewell to 2012. Wishing you all a happy and prosperous new year. May 2013 be filled with joy and success.

Now, I am going to "nail my colors to the mast" and proclaim a long-term resolution. I am turning 55 this year, which feels pretty significant. I've decided that my big promise to myself is that in the year I turn 60 I am going to participate in an Iron Man length triathlon. That's a lot to accomplish, but a 5-year plan to do it seems about right to me.

Watch this space for further details, but I felt like I had to get that said today.

Aww, thanks, hon. I woke up this morning thinking, "What the hell have I done?!" Which further convinced me that I'd been right in announcing it now, so I can't just chicken out.

May the power of your words be transformed into the power and actions of your body :)

Re: W00t!

I'm starting to work on the running part. I think that will be the biggest challenge.

What an amazing goal! It is a lot to accomplish, but your timeline plus some training assistance and you'll make it. Can't wait to watch the progress!

I figure if it's ever going to happen it needs to happen on this timeframe. It's going to be interesting....
