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!
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.
I Chose Fitness
My first triathlon was the confirmation that I made a life altering choice of fitness.
Overweight But Not Out Of Place
I thought I'd feel out of place among triathletes - until I realized I was one.
My First Triathlon...This Wasn't My Plan
From the couch to a half Ironman the hard way.
First Tri - I should've read more BT posts
The first wave takes off. Then the second. Then mine. That’s when things started to go awry. I wish I had read more of the posts on BT.

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.

Thousands of strokes, cranks and pushes later, I did my first sprint triathlon as a wheelchair racer. What a blast!
Halfway, but finished...
I was only halfway to my weightloss goal, but I was still able to finish my first triathlon only after 10 weeks of consistent training.

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!
My First Tri: Pink Power
I started training for triathlons in my early 20's but never entered one. Twenty years later found me still a newbie, with many extra pounds, much more humility and a healthy dose of reality.
To Try or Tri Not: The Newbie Triathlete's Conundrum
A bumbling non-athlete makes her determined way to the Nation's Triathlon finish line!
Bucket List Becomes Reality: My First Tri
It has been a bucket list item for years...something to do before I'm 25. Okay, maybe I'll push that to 30. Okay, maybe I'll let it go altogether.
Paralysis to Triathlon
In November of 2000, I noticed that I was losing the feeling in my toes. The sensation traveled up my body and within a week, I was nearly 80% paralyzed.
