LIVE YOUR OWN STORY. This is something I’ve been thinking a lot about as I make my 2020 race and travel plans. And tbh I’m writing this post mostly as a reminder to myself when the #FOMO gets real. Months ago I decided I would not race another #Ironman next year. That I will focus on 1-3 #halfironman, some shorter tris, and some #ultra #trailrunning races. A big driver of this is that Jon and I want to do an epic hiking trip sometime in the fall to celebrate our 10 year anniversary, and training both he and I for that (weekend backpacking trips across Alaska, yeah!) is not conducive to having to spend each weekend doing those long swim bike run sessions you need to do to be able to cover 140.6 miles. But as I put together my #race schedule, it’s so hard not to dive in, to say “screw it” and sign up for a full, or even too many races, period. I just have to remember that not every weekend has to be race weekend, and that I don’t have to do everything all the time. This is very hard for me! But I have to remind myself that there will be plenty of time to do all the things in my future. That this year, 2020, I have CHOSEN a different story for myself. So with mixed emotions I commit now: the only Ironman finish line you’ll see me at next year (🤞 we can make it work) will be when I’m cheering my little heart out as @heatherkennedyblossoms rocks #IMPenticton2020. And that is OKAY. I’ll be back for that torture/fun in 2021! 📸 old pic from Lake Mead, one of my fave spots!
