After much deliberation, I’m thinking the next big event will be Ironman Wisconsin in September of 2009. I’m hopeful that Jeanie and perhaps others will sign up too, so we can have some friends up there for the journey. A September race means we’ll be training through the heat of the summer, but we’ll manage. Maybe since this summer was grueling, then next summer will be mild. A girl can dream, no?
I’m learning that I need the goal to keep me moving. Since my race, I’ve had a great deal of trouble getting re-focused on training, so I signed up for the Longhorn half in October, I plan to do the Austin marathon in February, and I may look for another travel half in May or June of 2009. That should keep me relatively focused towards a September big race.
