I realized the other day this it was my three year anniversary of starting this little blog.
(Leather is, apparently, the traditional gift for a third anniversary. Perhaps my blog will be buying me some chaps?)
One of my original posts was my lifetime athletic “to do” list, so in honor of the anniversary, I thought I’d post it again and see if any progress had been made in the last three years:
Swim in a Masters meet DONE (completed July 2009)
Run a 5K DONE (two completed since 2009)
Run a 10K DONE (completed Oct. 2002, finished 202 out of 211, with a blazing speed of 1:09:02)
Beat my 10K time
Complete an individual sprint triathlon DONE (two since 2009)
Learn to cross country ski
Compete in an open water swim DONE (two since 2009)
Qualify for Masters Nationals is swimming
Ride at least one day of RAGBRI
Run a half-marathon
Make it to the top of a rock climbing wall (seriously, every single time I’ve tried, I end up 3/4 of the way up and freeze)
Run a mile in less than 10 minutes
That’s not too bad! I think I might be able to knock at least one of those goals off in the next year…now I just need to decide which one.
