Tri, tri again.....
I believe in speaking truth to power...said another way, I believe in putting things in writing. So here is it - In 2017 I will be doing a triathlon.
This is something that I have tried (no pun intended) to do before, but lost interest or allowed my mind to get the best of me. But a scary trip to the doctor and a read of an article on people.com (real news, I tell ya!) and here I am - committed to the madness once again. I have told no less than 5 people about this plan which, of course, means that I WILL be doing this.
So why? Because I want to do this and because I need a new physical challenge. Let's face it, I have plateaued and I need something to take my physical self to the next level. I also just want the pleasure of crossing the finish line and saying I did it. I remember how it felt when I crossed the finish line for the MS150 and I crave that feeling of accomplishment. I also want to do it because I need to kick myself in the butt. I'm carrying more weight than I care to carry anymore and I can no longer use the excuse of, "well I had knee surgery so I was idle for a while"....because the surgery was over 5 YEARS AGO.
So I'm getting real with myself and acknowledging that I haven't been as disciplined as I could be. I've worked out to maintain, but not to reach a real goal. So here we go!!!
