After last week's Chicago Marathon, it was time to take a step back. This year I had several goals that I hoped to reach. Also included was looking at my half-iron and marathon to decide my plan for 2009.

Snips and I decided after the marathon to put the Indy 500 MiniMarathon on our 2009 calendar for May and the USAF half-Marathon on for September. Those will probably be the only running races. The rest of my races will be tri's.


As far as my "A" race for next year, here it is: Beach2Battleship . With that said, I have 2 options for that race. It is either a half or full iron distance. Sharkie and I are planning to go volunteer at this year's race to look at the course.

On the homefront, hubby is home from the hospital. The surgeon felt the surgery to repair the aneurysm was very successful. He still has alot of pain from his RSD but we're still working on that. Thanks for all the prayer and postive thoughts.

Waddling to work on my 2009 game plan............

It's fun to start thinking about next year. It's great you can scope out that course as a volunteer to help decide what to do in 2009.

My knee doesn't seem to hold out much past 5-6 miles, so I might be limiting myself to 10K runs next year, but if that turns out to be my road race focus, it gives a lot of options. :-)

HHHMM my niece will actually be living about an hour north of this B2B triathlon... might just be a damn good excuse for not only my first 1/2 IM but a visit with my niece too...

North Carolina is a beautiful state. Good luck deciding on which race to do! More power to you there! I'm still not thinking full IM distance. Glad your husband is feeling better. That should ease your mind now.
