Last year was a big year of athletic events for me:
That is tough to live up to!
One of my MAIN goals for 2016 is redemption at a half Ironman (HIM). Ironman 70.3 Miami was the craziest event I’ve ever been through – consisting of jelly fish stings, extreme winds and high temps, as well as painful leg cramps that had me walking a majority of the run. Although I am extremely proud of crossing that finish line considering the conditions I put my body through – I know I can have a much faster time.

I definitely need to put more miles in on the bike as that is what KILLED my legs for the run, which is typically my strength. Also planning to be smarter about my sports nutrition by taking BASE Performance Salt, Amino, and Hydro properly! This will be a game-changer for me and highly recommend their product line if you are an endurance athlete.

But alas – I found out there is still an opportunity to participate in this race. Yep – so you’re tellin me there’s a chance!! Bahaha Dumb & Dumber.
By raising money for charity you are able to secure a spot in the event. Well that sounds like a pretty good way to get “in” to me!
Things is – we need to raise at least $2,000 and today marks FOUR MONTHS to go till IM 70.3 Boulder. If we do not reach out goal we pay out of pocket the remainder. Signing up was a huge risk for me as I am currently unemployed. Not a ton of time but I am up to the task as I know I have such a support group!
ZERO Prostate Cancer Endurance Team is the official Charity Partner and proceeds raised support their mission to end prostate cancer through awareness, outreach, advocacy, and research. Your support funds tomorrow’s treatments, today! Please help the 1 in 7 American men (too many) who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.
I would absolutely appreciate anything you can give to this awesome charity as well as helping me reach my 2016 goal.
