I've decided to kick start the blogging thing again. Like the title says, "From Every Angle." Everything from family, multi sport, running, bike racing and other interest will be fair game. With a new year comes a new me. AND I'm not off to a good start as I was reminded this weekend. I have some goals for 2011, but my main goal is to regain my easy going self or at least a modified version. Somewhere along the 10 years I've been living on the east coast I kicked that easy going vato to the curb.
Goals for 2011 in no particular order:
Teach my boy to ride with no training wheels
Get the kids involved in more extracurricular activities
Run the Marine Corps Marathon under 3 hours
Read more (off to a good start. Just finished Matt Long's "The Long Run.")
Fix things that need fixing around the house
Visit family more
Take a family vacation
Have more date nights with my wife
Ride my motorcycles more for leisure and not just work
Make another baby (JUST KIDDING !!)
The list will grow with time, but for now patience is key.
I have the 2011 racing season upon me. Racing will include trail running, duathlon, triathlon, bike racing and if all goes well a marathon. I have managed to keep the weight off this holiday season. Last year I shed off a bunch of extra weight I was carrying around. I went from 212 lbs to 185 lbs. I'm about 5 lbs over but come march I'll be back at my racing weight.
I'm still on the fence about doing Duathlon Nationals this year. The race takes place April 30, 2011, in Tucson, AZ. Last year, nationals was my motivation for the weight loss. I'm not sure I want to spend that kind of traveling money this year if we want to take a family vacation. Last year they were in Richmond which is only 90 miles south of us. For now, training is going well. I'm getting in both my running and riding miles and enjoying it.
Thank you for reading. I will also try to include some video entries, so check in from time to time. Hasta la otra amigos.
