T Minus ...

Hi, I'm Deb. I joined Sparkpeople on July 9, 2010 and already can feel my motivation to succeed climbing higher than ever before.

I call my blog "T Minus ..." because I often set goals for myself, some large-some small. Setting goals help keep me focused. Once I set a goal, I then will count down to the date I set to achieve it. Last year, I turned 50 and I set a goal to complete 50 tasks. I didn't get through all but I made it through half.

Hi, I'm Deb. I joined Sparkpeople on July 9, 2010 and already can feel my motivation to succeed climbing higher than ever before.

I call my blog "T Minus ..." because I often set goals for myself, some large-some small. Setting goals help keep me focused. Once I set a goal, I then will count down to the date I set to achieve it. Last year, I turned 50 and I set a goal to complete 50 tasks. I didn't get through all but I made it through half. Theni set a goal to learn to swim and complete a triathlon. I spent months gaining swimming skills and completed an indoor tri this past January.

My latest goal is to complete my first ever marathon this year. I have successfully completed 5ks, 10ks, 10 miler and half marathons. Now I want the whole enchilada. I have register for Women Rock marathon on September 1. To prepare, I will complete an 18-week training program that begins April 30. As I train, I will blog my progress here. If you follow my progress, I hope you find it to be inspirational, motivational and useful.
