CONTACT 140.6 challenge and a little bit of sunshine!

Sunshine Award!
First off, I want to thank Julie for tagging me with the Sunshine Award!  It completely made my day!  :)  



I'd like to pass along this Sunshine Award to those of you have given me a little sunshine in my blog life:  

CONTACT Cape Atlantic 140.6 Challenge
For those of you new to my blog, I entered a challenge to complete an Ironman distance triathlon in a month, spanning from Jan. 18th- Feb. 18th.  You can read more about it here. Well, I was a little worried earlier this month because of my never ending bronchitis, but I am happy to report that I did in fact complete the challenge!  Hooray!

*  2.4 mile swim - check
*  112 mile bike - check 
*  26.2 mile run - check

I am so glad that I decided to do this challenge.  It was just the motivation I needed to get back into training mode.  Now I can really focus on my half marathon training before I start my actual HIM training in March.  Yikes!  Where is the time going???

I hope you all have a great day! :)
