it's that time of year again.....

Every winter i sit at my computer in my sweats, fuzzy socks and lap blanket searching active.com for events I would like to 'complete' in the summer. Last year I did a triathlon for the first time. I had talked about doing one in 2009 and I knew I had to quit whining about it and sign up for one in 2010....so I did. And man was it fun!

Look at all those bikes!!!
So this year I want to do another....and I really would like to complete a longer distance one. Like I said....as I sit here at my computer all cozy in my fuzzy socks this feat sounds like a fun adventure...so I really need to find my event and sign up before I back out. I have already sent a message to my buddies Jody and Susan (pictured above) that I want to do this longer one...and they are all about it. I don't want to be caught whining and regretting not doing one.

So my goals for this year are to complete at least 2 triathlons-a Sprint and Olympic distance one. Then later in the year(think November) I want to compete a 1/2 marathon...gasp! What? Really? I do? I complete these events....not compete. No expectations. Just a way to exercise with a few hundred of my soon-to-be-closest acquaintances and get a free t-shirt.

I personally like Inactive.com better. I really don't have to look for things to not do, I seem to create enough of my own. I think next year they are going to ask me what some of my inactivities are so I can help all those people who are low on ideas.
