Second Quarter Review

I’m a little late, and I’m sure all of you have been pining away waiting for my second quarter review.  In case you missed it, here is the first quarter review for your reading pleasure. 

My goal for 2011 is pretty simple.  I want to complete 12 races in 12 months.  During the first quarter I completed just two races, The Livestrong Austin Marathon in February and Rock n Roll Dallas Half Marathon in March. 

With just two races under my belt in three months time, I had a little ground to make up and I did just that.  Here’s the recap of my races and other events in the second quarter of 2011. 

We had a visit from Granny

Wow!  I don’t know about you, but the months just seem to go by so quickly.  I can’t believe we are half way through 2011.  Pretty soon we’ll be talking back to school and pumpkin recipes. 

Oh well, time marches on.  I’m pretty happy having completed two triathlons and three 5ks in the second quarter.  I’m well on my way to my goal of 12 races in 12 months.  I’m excited for the 3rd quarter!  I smell a half ironman… RELAY!

Clue as to how busy you are: You were the first blogger to post a 1st quarter review. Your 2nd quarter review took 2 weeks.

A half-IM relay sounds awesome!

I just looked at my scheduled and realized that I only have 10 races scheduled for this year (I've got 4 done so far), and now it doesn't seem like enough. Jason is going to hate you for putting all these crazy ideas in my head, like 12 races in 12 months... because of course I drag him out of bed on his day to sleep in and make him go with me. lol.
