Sexy Like Chrissie or Jaime?

Different ends of the fitness spectrum huh?
I'm the person that needs something to look forward to. Desperately need to see something in the distance to reach to while I'm huffing and puffing and at the brink of collapse. So who have I been seeing lately? Ironman Champion Chrissie Wellington and IFBB Bikini Pro Jaime Baird.
I want to TRANSFORM. Is it possible to choose between the 2 different body types? YES YES & YES. But what did I want? To endure hours on end sweating on the bike or shaking arms as I bust out the weight on the bench press? Both sound tempting don't they?
And to answer the question running in your minds (maybe) of: Christina, you actually considering training for a figure competition? Uh, YES! Talk about getting over some insecurities! LOL, but I have recently seen so many transformations that I am positive that even the biggest gal can train and COMPETE in a competition. You just have to work your ass off, literally.
But what was my decision? Whats pumping through my blood? What do I dream of? What was I thinking of yesterday while I was sprinting out the last 200 yards of my heart rate test?
I was thinking of Chrissie Wellington's beautiful smile she had on her face at the end of 140.6 Ironman World Championships. 
Time for some decisions.

I was thinking at the gym today, do I want to be a runner or not a runner and focus more on lifting? I LOVE lifting heavy weights, but I also love running and am starting to love it more and get better at it. I can’t lift heavy weights 4x/week and also train for running, you know?

I decided right now I want to focus on running. I will lift heavy 1x/week just cause I love it, but my focus will be more on running then it will be lifting. :)
