A Fun Reminder of My First Tri

14 Jul

Thanks to Facebook, I was reminded that 2 years ago today I did my first triathlon. I cannot believe it. The swell was huge that day. I remember Josh was really nervous for me, but hid it well. I actually did ok. I felt like I was the only one who really knew the ocean. LOL Bike was so so and the run was HARD. My legs didn’t want to move.. not even for 3 miles. I cannot believe that I did that, thought it was too easy (well took me longer to drive there!), and went from a sprint to a half in the same year. From then, it took me a year to decide to to a full. Now I am here today. Training for my first full Ironman. I HATED the half I did in 2013, but loved the challenge. So, we, my husband and I, decided if I got in to the full in Arizona then I would compete. WOW! I did… and here I am, 4 months out exactly from race day, on this journey. I have already learned so much. I can do more than I ever thought I could. I have been more disciplined, learned to listen to my body better: both physically, mentally, and with nutrition. I am a stronger, more confident woman. I work hard and play hard. I love my body, my strength, my courage. I can’t wait to see what the next 4 months bring!
