All I did was sign up… and I had comment after comment on Facebook. . . and though it is only social media.. it makes me really excited to know that this many people believe in me. I am about to learn how to believe in myself more than ever. People get really excited and like “wow” when I tell them about IM, but I don’t realize yet what a big commitment this will be. If it weren’t for my friend Erin.. I wouldn’t really have considered a blog… but to be honest.. If I can do this.. anyone can. I was not born a triathlete… so I hope this blog gives you motivation and belief that you can do anything. I am your average joe… your plain Jade… just pushing to the limits. And, well…. eating a lot along the way!
