I’ve wanted to do a blog for quite some time but never really knew what to write about and frankly was afraid of putting myself out there for people to judge, but combining efforts with a couple close gal pals made it easier to get over myself and take the leap.
After a challenging 2013, full of breakups, health issues, and new role at work, I am ready to take 2014 head on. Last year was the wakeup call I think I needed. I’ve set some lofty goals for myself this year and want to make a serious dent on my Day Zero list.
One goal that I set for myself is to race my first Triathlon. I’ve wanted to race a tri now for the past couple years and was afraid another race season would go by with me on the sidelines so I signed up with Team in Training to race Banff, Subaru Triathlon. The reason I went the TIT route is because you have to commit to raise a minimum amount for the Lymphoma Society of Canada, by doing this I am minimizing the potential for excuses. Now, it’s out there, it’s real and people are donating to my fundraising efforts which means no turning back now (gulp). I am terrified, a little out of shape and did I mention a TERRIBLE swimmer. I’m sure I’ll learn a lot besides the obvious… learning how to swim. Official training starts in May, and I’ll be chronicling the ups and downs of a wannabe triathlete.
