So much of 2013 was trying new things and enjoying where life took me. I started the year chasing a big half marathon PR before transitioning to falling head over heels in love with everything triathlon. I thought my big goals for 2013 would be running related so I didn't set many triathlon goals. I trained hard and raced hard and had fun. 2014 is all about triathlon. I want to train with direction and with goals in mind.
Sometimes when I'm setting goals I choose ones that I know I will achieve. I don't like failure, as I don't think anybody does. My life goal for this next year is to get out of my comfort zone, look fear in the eye and risk failure. Triathlon has become such a big part of so it's only fitting that I set goals that meet these standards when it comes to racing. I've been doing a lot of thinking over the past few months what I want for myself and my life over the next few years as well as what will challenge me to become the best person and athlete I can be.
So these are my big hairy audacious goals for 2014.
I am excited, terrified, and ready to get to work!
