My initial goal was to wait until next year to start doing triathlons and races, but reading about Tom just going out there and doing it even when he wasn't 100% has inspired me to move up my schedule a bit.
So it's official; I am doing my first triathlon on August 9th in Columbus, IN. It's a sprint tri that has a half mile swim, a 17.5 mile bike ride, and a 3.1 mile run. It looks like I have some hardcore training to do in the next month! I should be updating my blog every couple days with my training progress if you're so inclined.
