I remember leading up to it how focused I was on training - especially with swimming. I had recently learned to swim specifically to do a triathlon. I was not a good swimmer at.all. But I was determined.
It was a sprint triathlon - 400m swim, 14 mile bike, 5k run. And it turns out that the swim was my favorite part of the day. I guess I had focused so much on the swim that I wasn't adequately prepared for the HILLS on the bike and run course. Ugh - it was tough. But I did it all with a huge smile on my face and crossed the finish line in something like 2:15 and change.

Unfortunately since I'm not signed up for any races, I haven't been doing anything. I have turned into a huge slug. I didn't realize how much I needed these events to motivate me. I guess fear of coming in last is a huge motivator for me!
So I guess I should probably sign up for something to get my mojo back. I'll keep ya posted!
