The Triathalon is now over. The three of us who started together – finished together, as planned. Two of us who have never done a triathlon (me and Steve) were a little unprepared for the swells (despite the ocean looking very flat and calm). We had trained in the bay, but this was a bit different. We were glad for the swim to be over, we didn’t have to be pulled out by the lifeguards and made it out of the water, as demonstrated in the picture – I’ll be prepared next time.
The learning from the triathlon and life in general:
- Stretch your comfort zone
- Try something you are afraid to do
- Don’t go for the perfect – getting a “b” is OK
- Have Fun!
By the way, Alison and I finished first in our age class… I beat others in the 60-64 age class (and it was not an N of 1 in my category)… Woot! I am ready for the next one.
Go out and try something you never thought you would do… Double dare you.
