In regards to overall health and fitness, I would like to be able to find a good balance between work, sleep, and training. Add in proper nutrition and daily vitamins and I should be a happy person!
Even though there are no family or friend weddings on the calendar for 2009, as of right now (in comparison to the 3 I had this past year), I look forward to fun times and travels with friends and family. Nothing is set in stone just yet, but I anticipate a good amount of trips to the twin cities, possibly a trip to the east coast the end of July, and hopefully a trip to Montana to visit a friend of mine... and as time goes on, I am sure many more fun things will come about.
Now that I am settled into my own home and career, I would really like to branch out a bit more with my races. I have so many races and goals in mind for 2009, and I will list them all. However, I would really like to attempt different races and distances, consisting of a half marathon (or 2), sprint and olympic triathlon, duathlon, a 10-miler, and then a couple longer rides (A).
