19 Miles

That's how far I rode my bike today. Why on earth would I do such a thing? Because I'm training for a triathlon. I started training two weeks ago and we've got two weeks left til the big day. I am training with a group of people from church and it's actually been fun! We are going to be doing the Tri for Fun, which is a sprint triathlon so the distances are shorter. It's a .5 mile swim, followed by a 16 mile bike and then a 3 mile run. On Saturdays we do all three in a row and this past weekend we did almost the whole thing! It's definitely hard, but after each workout I am so impressed with what I am able to accomplish. I am not trying to be fast, I just want to finish it. Up until now I was hesitant to post about it, because I thought if I write about it then I am locked into actually doing it. But I registered online yesterday and paid my fees, so it's official!
