It’s official! I will complete my goal of becoming a triathlete this year!
How do I know?
Because I was invited to attend the Dilettante Women’s Triathlon, and I RSVPed YES!
It’s pretty exciting to actually have a date on the calendar!
…and I’m kinda shaking and nervous.
Me, the girl who couldn’t even swim a lap with her face in the water just a year ago, about to swim in a competition?
Me, the girl who prefers bikes that can be ridden with sundresses, about to speed along on two wheels in BIKE SHORTS?
Me, the girl who was limping around on crutches, just four months ago, about to run competitively?
Okay, well, this one’s really not that surprising, since running is what I love!
But here’s the thing: I want to do this to prove that I can. I was forced into swimming and biking because of injury, and I’m ready to turn that injury into a positive by joyfully using my new talents! A triathlon will be so fun!
So who’s with me? Who wants to RSVP yes? Come join me!
An RSVP would mean:
1. A chance at a GREAT ADVENTURE with swimming, biking, and running.
2. A chance to have fun with me and tons of other women, with no guys to intimidate (or be smelly)!
3. Yummy chocolates.
PLUS, I’ve got a discount code for you: $10 of with code RUNFUNDONEDWT13 (register here).
I’ve never had a discount code with my blog name! This is very exciting!
So now, here’s the question: At first I said I would do the sprint, because well, it’s my first triathlon. But then I started freaking out about the fact that if I’m doing the sprint (shorter distance), I have to go faster. And, well, I hate going fast, I’m definitely more of an endurance person. What’s a girl to do?
Will you join me for the Dilettante Women’s Triathlon? If you were me, would you do the sprint, or olympic distance?
