Race Calendar for 2010

2009 was my year.  It was all about the big show, Ironman and the training that went along with it.  2010 is not my year.  2010 is The Year of Tim.  After running the Rock N Roll Las Vegas Marathon in December 2009 he was hooked on the events and signed up for 6 Rock N Roll events in 2010.  Now that he has committed to the races and the dates, I was able to finalize my races for 2010.  With starting a new job, I am not 100% sure that these will all be possible but here is the plan:
January 17, 2010 - Rock N Roll Phoenix 1/2 Marathon March 13, 2010 - St. Patrick's 5km April 24, 2010 - Delta Sprint Triathlon May 2, 2010 - BMO Vancouver Marathon May 24, 2010 - North Shore Sprint Triathlon July 11, 2010 - Squamish Olympic Triathlon August 15, 2010 - Lake Stevens 70.3 September 6, 2010 - Vancouver Sprint Triathlon Looks like I will have my plate full!

Happy training.

2009 for me was an amazing year of athletic accomplishments.  I had a PR in virtually every race I participated in or placed in my age group and confidently completed my first Ironman at Ironman Canada. 

What you may not know is that in October I was laid off.  I only had a hint about a week before that it might happen and it did.  It was a shock and was a pretty low point for me.  In the 16 years I have been working this is my first experience being laid off.  I was bitter about how the whole thing was handled and somewhat depressed about the situation.  It was 8 weeks before Christmas and I already had a trip to Orlando for Christmas booked a year in advance.  Basically, that gave me 4 weeks to look for and secure a new job before the new year.

I am happy to say that I was successful in finding fantastic position with a …
