Yeti Ultra 24-Hour Virtual Challenge: Race Recap
A new year, means time to register for some races!
Registering for races is a huge way that I stay accountable – if I’ve paid to compete in something, you better betcha that I’ll be working hard on training for it! It just works to keep me focused – eyes on the prize!I am defiitely excited for a year of RUNCATIONS too! Hubs and I have talked a lot about traveling and enjoying our lives right now as D.I.N.K.s (Dual-income, no kids) before we decide on the next step of our marital journey! So, I give you:
Becoming a Half Fanatic after Disney, I’ll next be a Level 2 after my April Half. To boot, many of these races will go towards my 5 by the 5th and 13 in 2013 Race challenges! Not to mention some travel and race milestones are happening!
