Future running goal: I would like to run another marathon, maybe next year. I will really need to work on my fueling for this one and do better with my strength training.
Recent accomplishment: In the past year, I started swimming again, I’ve run longer than I ever thought I could, started biking, ran a marathon and completed a sprint triathlon. I used to think waking at 7 am was early and now I am routinely awake at 5 am to bike or swim or run. The support of the people in this group has been so amazing and motivating. Thank you!!
