Sign Up Day

downloadToday I am going to Sign Up. For What do you ask? It is for Team In Training. One of the most fun group training non profit organizations. I will be signing up to do a triathlon. I have been wanting to do this for a long time now. It has been 3 years since my last event and it will be my third event. I am excited about it because I know I want to accomplish this endurance event for a long time now. I am signing up to do a triathlon in Sepetember. It is going to take a lot of hard work and dedication especially from my family for their sacrifice to this. I have talked to my wife about it and she knows what I am going to be doing.

I know the swim portion of the race is going to be the toughest. I did a triathlon back in 2008 with horrific results and a bad experience only because I didn’t learn to swim as well and as confident as I wanted to. I think I should have been able to get through the swim a lot better but as I got into the water for the first time, I really felt scared. Check out my youtube video of my brother recording me in the water. I came in last in my age group. I know there was someone from the group after us that actually came out of the water before me. When I got on my bike, I was so tired from the swim that I was still trying to catch my breath and really couldn’t.

When I got to the run, I was already just tired overall and couldn’t push as much as I would have liked to. This time, I think with the help of Team in Training and my determination to do better I will be confident and also do better.
