Initially this blog was an outlet to allow me to compose on a variety of topics – all having to do with my learning to embrace change and improvement.
With an emphasis placed on improving my health and fitness, this blog began to change into something I didn’t expect. I became a TRIATHLETE and a runner and this became more of a brass-tacks training and tri-lifestyle blog.
My first race was a very small local 5K, and it took me approximately 4 months to train to a level where I felt as if I was giving it my best. My goals were (a) not to walk, (b) not to throw up and (c) not to cry too bad. Happily I achieved all three and then set my course to bigger and better things. This led to a 5 miler, a 10 miler, a half marathon, and then triathlons.
While 2013 has been an injury-plagued year, I did learn quite a bit about myself and what works and what doesn’t work. I volunteered at Ironman Arizona to see a world-class race close-up, and then registered for 2014. I plan to fund raise for the American Cancer Society along the way.
This is a journey of self-discovery, and an exercise in choosing the biggest, hairiest audacious goal I can find and then working towards that.
