I said it once, and I’ll say it again. The best advice I have stumbled upon regarding my triathlon dream is: do not worry about how bad/fat/silly you look while doing it.
Man. I received the link to the professional photos from last weekend’s triathlon. The sheer sight of me in the run to bike transition is almost enough to make me quit. I am proud of the fact that I finished the race. But I am humbled by the realization of just how far I have to go.
I am scheduled for the Fall Chill Duathlon this coming Sunday. It’s a 4 mile run, 16 mile bike, and then finish with a 2 mile run. My mind is ready, but my body is not cooperating. I am pretty obliterated from last weekend’s triathlon. Just not too sure if I’m going to make it to that race.
