    I have yet to enter into the Tri world, but I’ll be running my second marathon with you on Sunday! πŸ™‚

    After that, I’m transitioning to a focus on some serious strength training this summer – high weights, low reps, SHOW ME DEM MUSCLES! kind of training. It’s WAY out of my comfort zone, so I don’t have a specific goal yet, but I’ll be working with my personal trainer on setting some realistic goals once we figure out where I am, and I’m so excited to tackle a new challenge!

    I’d LOVE to add a triathlon to my goal list! πŸ™‚

    How perfect! My summer goal is to do my first Triathlon. I’ve run two marathons but don’t bike or swim (yet) so this should be an interesting adventure. I’ll definitely be reading all your triathlon tips and race recaps over the next few months!

    I’ve lost 40 pounds since October! I gained weight while I was in an abusive relationship and after calling my wedding off-I started running and the weight peeled off. My goal this summer is to keep the weight off and keep running! It’s my therapy.
    I would have never survived without it. I did my first half marathon in march and I’m hooked-completing a triathlon is next on my list! Another goal is to rock a bikini this summer

    My summer goal is to get better at swimming! It amazes me that I can run for miles and miles no problem, but put me in a pool and I’m dying after a few laps! I am determined to change that, and training for a triathlon would motivate me to stick with it!

    My sister and I grew up in Maine but we both live out of state now – I live in New Jersey and she in Florida. She just recently moved to Maryland, though, just two hours from me, so my goal this summer is to get in a road race with her! We’ve never run one together and have always wanted to, so we are hoping to this summer!

    I would LOVE this! I live in Chicago and have been wanting to do a tri for a while… but I’m scared! So many unknowns…

    My first goal for this summer is to get through Ragnar (coming up in only 5 weeks, eek!)… then I want to keep working on my pull up goal that I’ve been neglecting.

    May active goal is to run my second half-marathon this year and to PR it. I ran a half and a 30k last year, but after that I stopped running because A.) I was switching jobs and didn’t get to the gym as much, and B.) It was winter and I hate the cold.

    I’m starting from scratch again, so I’m excited to build up my mileage again and hopefully run injury-free this season πŸ˜€

    My goal for the summer is continue and complete my weight lifting program and to stick to my marathon training for the Walt Disney World Marathon in Jan. 2013. I never completed a weight training program before always kinda winged it but I’m getting married August 17, 2013 and want to look toned in my strapless dress. For the marathon, I knew it’s a long way off but I need to ease my way back into running to prevent my ankle and back problems from flaring up.

    Good luck on your race this weekend. I love your blog. It really makes me motivated to continue my running.

    My goal this summer is to complete my first tri and century ride – i just got in the pool for the first time 2 months ago (I’m 28!) and I just bought my first road bike around the same time as well.

    I thought I wouldn’t love them as much as I love running, but secretly I might like them more. Hooray for broadening one’s horizons.

    A Danskin Traithlon in Webster, MA was my first ever in 2010, my second ever race at all! I planned to complete another one last summer, but a shoulder injury last spring prevent me from completing my goals last summer. After lots of recovery time and new resolve in the weight room to rebuild my strength, I’m looking forward to completing another one this summer – maybe two, even if I’m not as fast a swimmer this summer as I was last time. I loved the Danskin all-women’s supportive women’s atmosphere and the huge age range of the competitors there!

I live in Boston, MA, and ran 5 marathons this past year, including 2 Boston Marathons, but I have not yet tackled a tri. I just joined the YMcA and have been swimming, which I really love but am not great at!

    I really enjoy your blog and think its cool that you are giving away the danskin entry! This summer I will compete and complete my very first triathlon. I am racing the NYC Olympic TRI in July! My goal after that will be to get involved in as many sprints and olympics distant races as possible…then onto the half iron and eventually a full! Keep the posts coming!!!

    I did the relay tri in Chicagoland last year and would love to do it on my own this year! My active goal this summer is to put in more miles on my bike!

    Viva! My wish is to bring my 16 year old niece up from Florida for the first time and enlist her to “do ” the tri with me – she is my departed cousin’s daughter, the lovely Vivian, who is full of life and is game for trying her first TRI!
    ( I am an “old timer” pushing 54 and still TRI ing! Getting better every year… )
