I Want to Enter a Triathlon

Sunday, September 02, 2012

Not a long one. Not even a sprint triathlon. A "tri-it" triathlon. I have no idea what put this in my head today. But as I was reading about "tri-it" triathlons, I began to realize, "hey, this is something I could do with some training, after my 5K." The distances for a try-it triathlon vary, but generally, it's a 300M swim, 2.5K run, and 10K bike ride. I've swam at least that distance before. I'm training for a 5K, so 2.5K will be easy. And I rode my bike 8K last week, so that won't be very difficult either. I'm not saying this won't be hard. I'm just saying that it's do-able. Part of me thinks I'm crazy. But another part of me knows I'm not. My mentality towards sports so often has been "I can't." But that's beginning to change. I found a triathlon that I would like to enter. Their dates for 2013 are not on their website yet, but it was held in June of this year. Assuming it's in June next year, that's about 10 months from now. And it supports Ronald McDonald House, so it's for a good cause. :)

    I am hoping for the same - I am banking on this to get me motivated through winter to exercise with this goal in mind for next summer. Good luck!
