"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence. Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements. You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward. Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine." -- Ralph Marston
Hope your week is going great, Spark friend! Keep taking those steps towards your goals. Never give up! As long as you keep going, you will succeed. You are always worth your best effort! Hugs, Pixie
Thanks for the suggestions on the triathlon. I do open water swims a lot. The lake I have swum a few times is simlar to where I will be doing the 70.3. But I may just drive up there and swim in the actual lake, and try to ride at least some of the bike ride. Great suggestions, thanks!
