I swim, I bike, I run and I’m learning to call myself a triathlete.
Triathlon training has been life-changing for me. Life is a work in progress… My life, my training, my mindset and my body are constantly changing and a lot of this due to being a triathlete… TRI-ing to Change.
I completed my first sprint distance triathlon in July 2009. Now, in August of 2012, I’m getting ready to start training for a full Ironman distance triathlon (Ironman Arizona in November 2013). When I started training for the sprint distance race even those distances seemed unmanageable. I still tend to focus on how far I have to go or how difficult a workout was instead looking at how much I’ve really accomplished over the past few years. This is one of those areas that I’m TRI-ing to change. Even if no one else ever reads this blog, when I cross the finish line of my first Ironman, I want to be able to look back at my training and remember all the joys, success, accomplishments, challenges, trials, and tribulations and to celebrate it all!
