So I’ve never shown myself on this blog, other than recent race pictures, because well, I don’t really like seeing pictures of myself, although I don’t mind them nearly as much now as in the past.
In the spirit of the Missouri 60 Challenge (Missouri is the “show me” state) I am posting a current picture of me and in 60 days I’ll post another.
The idea of the Missouri 60 challenge is to set goals and then achieve them within the 60 days. They don’t even have to be fitness related, but in my case some of them are.
1. I have a big project related to my weight loss I’d like to get underway. In 60 days I hope to see that come to fruition (more about this in a couple of weeks.)
2. I have my first triathlon on August 1. My goal is to finish this in under an hour. That’s only like 35 days away, but I think it counts.
3. I’d also like to find a 5K or 10K to run in and be at the point where I can compete comfortably in 60 days. Right now I’m running 2.5 miles. I’d like it to be 5 or 6 miles in 60 days, but I’ll be happy with 4.
4. The scale has been unpredictable so I’m not putting a weight on this challenge. My goal is to be fitter in 60 days than I am now. And if the weight comes off, that’s a bonus!
I’m excited for this challenge! The deadline is June 30 to join. If you’d like to be part of it, get those pictures up there!!
Before and after:
