It's about TIME!

DST - Three simple letters that have changed my life. I have built an entire lifestyle around this date/time/event. It seems so simple, and yet, it's one of the hardest things I've ever done. It was 2 years ago today, that I made the committment to a healthier me. I dedicated myself to running and completed a marathon. Then 1 year ago I recommitted to the lifestyle and began to focus on losing weight. Completed my second and third marathons, and a slew of other races along the way.

Today, I find myself ready to change my clocks again, and vow once again to continue this journey that has been anything but easy. I wish I had a glorious announcement today, but I am literally 2 pounds shy! Being honest with myself has been a staple of this process, so I can't stretch it this time either! I have lots 98 POUNDS from my heaviest. The scale shows 212 this morning, and I couldn't be happier.

This week has been very emotional for me. I began my "official" 18 week training program for the Half Ironman on Monday. I have completed it to a tee so far, but we're only 6 days in! I bought my first race bike, and I bought my first wetsuit. There's just one more thing to do...


And so I did...I am now officially registered for the Muncie 70.3 Ironman!
