I always like to set lofty goals for myself, the list below is of major races or events that I would like to compete in. I mean who picks the NYC Marathon as the first marathon they will ever run. I love the big events, a part of me wants to prove that I can do it successfully with diabetes. For to long I held myself back and I have been trying to makeup for lost time these past six years. Out of all of the items on the list below I would like to compete in at least one. I want two special people in my life to see me cross the finish line at a major event.
Boston Marathon This would be like a hometown marathon. Ever since I was a kid Boston has been a part of my life. I have had a lot of good moments while in Boston and I'd like to add finishing the Boston Marathon to that list.
Mount Washington Road Race I love pain!!! Nothing would be more painful than a 7 mile run with an average grade of 8%!! I love a challenge and I feel this would be one of the toughest athletic challenges of my life.
Indianapolis Marathon A random marathon for me to choose but having a great friend living in Indy makes this marathon appealing.
Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hill climb I have an obsession with Mt. Washington and athletic events. I honestly think this would be tougher than running the road. I would love to compete in this event for the same reasons as the run.
Yet To Be Named- This is a individual bike ride that would be over 200 miles in a single day. This is a solo project that I'm working on and hopefully I will have the sponsors to make it a reality. Look for more news on this in the coming weeks!!!
