Welcome to my BLOG! I have been passionate about running and working out since my college days, but didn’t start endurance running of any sort until 2006. Even then, I thought I would just do one marathon and check it off my list of things to do before I die. I did my ONE and then several to follow because I was hooked!
What else can I do? Maybe a TRI?
So, in 2009, I trained for my first baby tri (smaller than a sprint TRI as the swim was only 1/4 mile). And, I didn’t know how to swim! I doggie paddled my way through, then biked like mad and ran just as hard, and ended up winning my first baby TRI. I should mention here that the field was extremely small at about 100 peeps, but I was stoked (and, eh hem, I’ve never come close to winning another — HA!).
I then stepped up my TRI training and did a half Ironman in 2010, then another in 2011, followed by my DREAM come true: IRONMAN CANADA. I’d like to do another in a couple of years, but will focus on family, health, and smaller races for the 2012 season.
Please join me on my journey of random thoughts.
