Summer of Sarah, revisited

This winter/spring I set out 8 fitness goals and proclaimed this summer The Summer of Sarah. My goals were the following:

1) Run Get in Gear 5K
2) Join Velo Bella
3) Take the track class
4) Go to Women's Night at the track
5) Race the track
6) Race a time trial
7) Race a crit
8) Race Iron Girl

My actual results in any of these didn't matter to me. What mattered to me was that I got up enough courage to actually show up and do it.

I not only ran Get in Gear but also the Battineau Neighborhood Earth Day 5K.
I joined Velo Bella
I took the track class
Went to Women's Night
Raced not one but two time trials - Wrenshall and Hamel
Raced (or rode) Cloquet Crit

So while I didn't feel ready this year to race the track or Iron Girl, I think I still did pretty well.

This winter I have a few goals (fitness and otherwise) up my sleeve that I am going to ponder... then post.
