It is triathlon season, and it seems that half of the people I know are completing them.
The gomers have decided to “try a tri”
M finished her first one this weekend
And now I want to do one too!
Seeing the swimmers all lined up
and the transition area all set up
was inspiring (kind of like the first time I went to a marathon, not to run, but to cheer).
The only problem…I don’t really swim. I took swim lessons as a kid but instead of learning how to swim, I mostly learned how not to drown. Don’t get me wrong, I can get from one end of the pool to the other, just not efficiently…I basically flail myself across the pool.
I feel like this…
The race M did today was a women’s only race geared toward beginners and I think it is something I can actually accomplish! I have 12 months to learn how to swim after all!
Maybe I just need this kind of motivation…
Have you done a triathlon?
