I remember watching an online video of a thriathlon a couple month ago and thinking - 'i can do that.' Well, here I am training for one. When i decided to accept the 'Get Active Challenge' all seemed fun and easy, it turns out it is not as easy but sure is fun. I love challenges and physically this is going to be my greatest challenge so far.
I work with Steve Sunders in Utah and like him my biggest challenge is going to be swimming. I don't think i have ever tried to swim for that long at once. So naturally, swimming is going to be my main area of focus. If i survive the swim, i will probably finish the race
I dont think running is going to be much of a problem, i love playing soccer and usually run a lot. So my goal for running is to keep a decent pace (not as fast as an ethiopian, but close. lol ), which is going to be hard after biking and swimming.
i love riding my bike although i have never attempted riding it wearing those tight clothes you see on the tour of france. I think that is going to be a different experience for me.
The bottom line is that i am excited about this and will give it my best
