Confession: I have been in a little bit of funk following my marathon.

It is hard to explain, but I just feel a little lost now that it is all over.

This past year has been a complete whirlwind, and I have been jumping from one race to the next, with a couple surgeries mixed in for good measure. So you would think I would be thankful for the break.

But I have found myself asking, "Now what?!"

No race to prep for? No medical crisis to navigate? Now I can just focus on me, right? But I feel like I don't even know what that means anymore?

It has taken me a couple weeks to regroup and reassess, but I think I am finally getting back to me.

Armed with a new haircut and a crossfit membership I am feeling like a Brand New Chick!

So now I'm singing...

"Don't need your sad face, sorry babe. But I made up mind. I made up mind"
After my less than stellar marathon experience, and a little time to reflect (and mope), I have decided another marathon is definitely in the future. Maybe Spring 2013? Maybe? Maybe?

Lesson have been learned. Mistakes were made. It is time to dry those tears, and move on to the next one.
"Got my red lipstick on. Engines Revving. You're so far behind. And I am taking mine"
But if I want the time and performance I desire, I am gonna have to spend sometime rebuilding and making a full recovery. So crossfit is all about coming back stronger and better than ever.

Surprisingly enough my cardio was good, it was my upper body strength that really did me in on race day. I have decided to make friends with weights, and get myself lean and strong.

I am gonna get that Marathon I have been dreaming of.


"I'm like a, I'm like a, I'm like a brand new. I'm like a, I'm like a, I'm like a brand brand. Turning up the, turning up the, Turning up the beat so sick. I'm like a brand new chick"

Ready People! Let's Get After It and Do This Thing!
