I signed up for the Women of Steel Triathlon next May. This race sells out really fast because they pass out chocolate at the finish line. No, really it’s because it’s the perfect beginners triathlon; a swim in a pool and no men. Do you have plans to do a triathlon? According to my sister Donna, you have to have a bunch of kids and want to get away from them, but that’s not the only reason to do one.
I did one in August of 2008 and surprised myself. I was hoping to just fit in and not be last. I liked the whole experience, especially the training and I now hold it, the triathlon, responsible for propelling me into…other things, painting, weight loss, more babies…. Things I did not think I could ever do. Maybe something else has been that catalyst for you. It’s powerful—no?
I’ll look for you at the finish line – while I'm gobbling up chocolate.
