I competed in my first triathlon on Mother's Day. It was an idea that had interested me for a couple of years, but I never followed through on it until this past March when I actually clicked the "register" button and made the financial commitment. I knew if I spent the money, I would make it happen. I was nervous about the whole idea of it because of the many unknowns. I have participated in organized running races, but couldn't imagine the specifics of the swimming and biking portions, let alone all 3 in one race and one outfit. I am a detail oriented person so this missing information gave me some worries. My excitement to finish a triathlon, kept me motivated and I am so GLAD I did it!! My feeling of accomplishment was even stronger because I did it despite my fears.
I have some fears about starting a blog too, but I am jumping in with both feet and giving it my best shot. If I don't try....I'll never know if I can. Plus, I have a feeling I'll learn some things along the way.
