There is a light at the end of the tunnel

and it isn't just the train!

Even though I have all sorts of "real" life drama going on and I have most likely been subconsciously using it as an excuse to not set some 2012 goals, there are a few things on the horizon.

This weekend a group of friends are getting together for our Full Moon Snowshoe.  We pile into a friends beautiful home with all of our pot-luck fare and then head out into the wilds for fun, laughter and a good workout.  This year we will be doing the Full Moon Dance so that we can be certain the moon comes out to play with us.  It won't be a late night of frivolity this year as a majority of the group are training for Ironman Mt. Tremblant.

Also included in my moderate goals for this year (so far), is the 30th Annual Richmond Road Race.  I've learned from past experiences that this is one of the most fun races of the year.  Considering the weather can be anything from -40C to +10C, I generally just run the 5k, after all I haven't been out running since Thanksgiving weekend in October!!

On a totally crazy whim, I stuck my name into the New York City Marathon Lottery.  So far no word but if perchance I do get in, then with any luck, so will my friend Shelley from Born to Endure and we can have a blogger meet up!  Wouldn't that be just awesome?

So, in fact there are a few irons (ahhemmmm) in the proverbial fire, nothing has been fully committed to just yet.

Life's fun if you don't weaken,

I'm feeling the same way. Only committed to a couple of things, can't really decide what A races I want to hit up this year.

Yay for entering the lottery! I hope you get in!

I am kind of bummed I have not been able to use my snowshoes yet this year. Your Full Moon Snowshoe sounds fun!!!

Born To Endure said...

Yay, keeping my fingers and toes crossed that we both get in!!!!

OK, I just "followed" you again. Hopefully I won't lose your posts again.

I just found your blog. How long have you been doing triathlons? I plan to try my first next summer and am a bit nervous along with excited. I am not a swimmer but I have some time to get better and I can only get better, not worse!
