Way too long

It has been "way too long" since I posted on my blog. Also way too long since I've been dating. I am now a member of Match and while it has been an interesting few weeks - I'm not sure that it is the way to go for me. I have met a couple of really quality men and have been "dating" them. I have also met a couple of men who were definitely not my "cup of tea". It is hard to meet people and then have to tell them that you are just not that "interested". At the same time, I think it will be hard when one or more of them tells ME that they are not interested. We'll see how this shakes out - my friends at work told me I should blog some of the stories - there have been a couple of doozies. The guy who tells me his ex-wife thought she was abducted by aliens...I couldn't get out of there fast enough. HAHA. I have signed up for a Half Ironman race in August - Timberman - and also a Marathon in October. While I did a ton of training for Ironman LP last year, I have not run a marathon since 2009. I would like to improve my time and also have a faster time in the Half Ironman this year. Those are my big goals. My last post was about my DNF in Ironman LP and it is time to move on. That was a very difficult time for me - and months after I was still feeling like I could not talk about it without crying. Onward - I've done a ton of winter hiking this season and thoroughly enjoying that. Also ski'd for the first time in about 18 years (downhill) and cross country for the first time ever. Also went snow shoeing. I'm enjoying this winter being able to do some different things. Soon Spring will be here and I'm really looking forward to that also.


  1. I think you are allowed to mourn that bump in the road for that is all it was....we are not measured by the number of races we compete in, finish or win. You have always been a winner in my book and a wonderful role model. Deb G

  2. Susan - I'm with you... time for new things... You are truly one of the most fearless women I know and a winner in my book for sure! Spring is just around the corner and will bring out the biker in us... YAY!!
