What Running My First Triathlon Taught Me About Life
The future is an accident.
First Tri Experience, Start to Finish
This was the question I got pretty frequently, with some variations that included, “why the heck” and “what were you thinking?” Honestly? I really don’t know what specifically sparked the idea.
Old and Creaky
From sedentary to World Championships
My First Olympic Triathlon
I looked at the swim buoys and start thinking, "Man! How am I ever going to swim that? That looks like a very long distance from the bridge. I have never done it in one go." There's no turning back.
An Addiction is Born
Six years ago I was 44 years old and weighed 260+ pounds. If anybody had suggested to me that at age 50 I would complete a sprint-length triathlon I would have rolled my eyes and grabbed a doughnut!
Inspired to Get Fit for Wedding
Race To The Race
My race from obesity to Vineman 70.3
Shorter than Planned but Still Sweet
The night before the race when we dropped our bikes in transition we saw the swim course laid out in the water and those buoys looked SO FAR APART!
First Triathlon at age 59?
I had a bucket list of "must do's before I turn 60" but it was made up of things like "take a course in public speaking, weekend trip to NYC with my 3 grown sons, learn to kayak, etc." I needed more.
End Of One Long Journey, Beginning Of Another
There is such a feeling of power and confidence when you take control of your destiny! A year ago, I was a fat slob with no athletic inclination. I made this happen!
Willing to Tri Anything
I decided that completing a triathlon would be the perfect celebration of reaching my goal and losing 83% of my excess body weight by dropping 230 pounds.
Holy Cow, I'm A Triathlete!
As I entered the transition area, I got body marked. It was, for me, pretty intense. It made it so real...I was doing this! A triathlon!
I can't do a triathlon - or so I thought!
So much of what I thought a triathlon simply wasn't correct. How an okay Masters swimmer makes it through his first triathlon - slowly!
NanjingMan 2010 - Shanghai Expat Completes Her First Triathlon
Training was harder than I ever imagined it would be. I've always considered myself athletic, but never really had a need to push myself beyond my comfort zone. This was so different and so rewarding!
