The Journey

I started this journey in August of 2009.  My First Post, No Backing Out Now was the beginning of a now almost 2 year journey to a healthier me.  A month after starting on my Triathlon journey, I Went Public telling those closest to me that I had started a blog, and that I was intending on competing in a Triathlon.  Trust me, there were snide comments, jokes and sarcasm  along the way, but what became of this journey so far, was a new appreciation for my abilities, and a realization that I could let go of the things that hurt me

With my trusty treadmill Gustav and my new Spin Bike, Gunter  as well as in in the pool the place where I am at home and most comfortable, I learned that with hard work, anything is possible.

My First Triathlon  was completed in June of 2010  and My Second Triathlon  was completed in August.  This year, I intend to compete in three more.   As I had stated in my first triathlon recap post-  this is only the beginning of my journey.  I have a long way to go, and I sincerely hope that you will take the journey with me.
