If You Want Results

You are going to have to make some changes.

With the end of 2011 rapidly approaching, I am thinking about my goals for 2012. I will do an entire post about my goals later, but for now just know that there are going to be some changes made!

I've changed many things in my life. When I was in kindergarten I said that I wanted to be an artist or a runner when I grew up, hmm well I guess one of those things came true! I changed my major in college from Computer Science to Interpreting. I've made changes to my social circle and relationships that I have with people. I've changed my appearance (I used to be blonde).

The first year we were dating!

In 2012 the changes that I am going to make are going to help me achieve my goals of becoming a future marathoner and Ironman. There will be people who are going to try to bring me down and there will be people who will support me in anything that I try to accomplish (maybe some Turbo Kick, Marissa?) I know I have friends and family who will be there for me no matter what and to you I say thank you. To the naysayers I just have to say that I feel sorry for you. I feel sorry that you gave up on your dreams and goals and just want to bring others down.

Nothing is impossible, you may just have to make some changes.

To end on a lighthearted note, I want to do a future "Question and Answer" post, but in order to do so I need your help! Feel free to leave a question that you are dying to have answered by me and I will compile them all and write a post sometime soon!


  1. running question or anything question?

  2. How did you prepare for your FIRST half marathon? I'm nervous about mine and would love to hear about other people's firsts. How do you prepare for any race in general?

  3. Can you remember the first time you heard about marathons and long-distance triathlons? And did you know you wanted to do these races as soon as you heard that there were races like this?

  4. How did you meet your husband? Was there anyone in particular that inspired you to start running and go for a marathon/Ironman? What's your favorite race distance so far? Way to go on setting such impressive goals for yourself!

  5. What made you decide that you wanted to do an Ironman?

  6. How do you convince Mike to do the running thing with you? Because my bf just isn't into it. X)

    And we WILL be marathoners in 2012. That's our goal :)
