2016 Wrap-up and onto 2017 planning!

Goals for the new year... blog more!

Seriously though, I am hoping that with a return to training (soon, I swear) that I will also get back to blogging regularly.  For today though, I am looking back on my 2016 season with lots of warm and fuzzy feelings. I had a pretty good year in sport and life, and I am so grateful that I have my health and the support of my friends and family to thank for that.  Here is a quick wrap-up of 2016, month by month.

January:  Lots of time spent learning to skate ski! 

 February: My first snowshoe race and a 1st place to boot!

March:  Last ski of the season and I crushed the climb up Fortune.

April:  A trip to Colombia for some R&R in the sun, plus my 30th birthday!

May:  A new, beautiful Argon 18 E-117 Tri and my first race of the season, the ever fun, local Early Bird Triathlon.

June:  A return to Tremblant to conquer the sprint as a healthy athlete!

July:  A brutal day at Nationals, with no swim, but still a spot for 2017 Worlds. 

August: My first Half Ironman at Timberman 70.3 was a huge success and a super fun day! Thankful to have mom there to cheer for me! Plus a first place finish at Cornwall Triathlon sprint!

September:  The most fun of my season at the inaugural Amphibious Challenge Swimrun. Obsessed!

October:  Brought home my new puppy!

November:  Lots of puppy time and very little training. 

December:  Cheering on Team Canada as Dad is coaching for the World Juniors Tournament

And now, I'm into my planning phase for 2017.  I have a new coach, Dave from DEKK Coaching, and I am currently filling out my goals and training objectives for the season.  When they are ready, I'll share them here for some extra accountability!  I do have two big races on the calendar already: Victoria 70.3 and Age Group World Championships in Rotterdam! It's going to be another awesome year!
