The Triathlon Journey
Looking back at reminiscing about some key moments. I made a decision I was going to learn to swim in september 2012, borrowed the total immersion book from the library and got a groupon to the JCC in october, got in the pool for the first time and started to learn to float and swim on my back.
Hurricane sandy put us in the hotels for two months and my training was put on hold. I then joined xsport in december and didnt get back in the water until january.
I registered for the tobay tri in January hoping to train from that point forward. With lots of set backs including knee injury, eye infections, colds, life, a failing business due to the storm, trying to find a coach, fixing our home and moving back in, believing in the wrong people and losing trust in others, having to reinvent myself and my business, & accepting that I must shut down a franchise after 6 years of blood sweat and tears, committing myself to teaching yoga to kids which put all training on hold for almost two months, completing a 7 month 200hr yoga certification program, starting a bike safety program in LB, and all the challenges of motherhood....here I am a week before my first triathlon and knowing that this journey was truly intended for me.
Learning to overcome challenges we face is the true accomplishment. No matter what happens on aug 24th I have already won! Thank you for all the love and support! Its just the beginning! Whos joining me next year?
