A year ago I was in the final week of training for my first tri. So much has happened in the year since.
Since I became a Triathlete almost one year ago:
…I ran my first 10-miler.
…I ran my first half marathon.
…I ran/biked my first duathlon.
…I am currently training for my first marathon!
Since I started this journey, I have so much more confidence in myself and my abilities. I once hated running and now I love it- and I am getting better at it every week and it shows in every race. I learned to ride a bike and I am getting more and more confident with each ride. And I can dismount without falling now! I have far surpassed my initial expectations for myself in this sport and I continue to surprise and amaze myself with what I can do! From my first tri last year to my second tri last week…almost a full year; the difference between those races and who I was then and who I am now is something I can’t even put into words. I really feel like things have begun to fall into place for me, both in my life and as an athlete; I am healthier than I have been in the last 15 years, I train regularly, I keep a healthy balance between work/school/training/life and I am happy. 🙂
Basically what I am saying is…I am pretty frigging awesome!!
Is that narcissistic of me??? Probably. Even so, I don’t take it back.
I. Am. Awesome. 🙂
I still have a lot planned for the rest of this year and I have begun making plans for next year (that post will come eventually) that will further test me as a person and an athlete. I am looking very forward to these challenges as I feel each one contributes to who I am as a person.
Ok..enough about me, how about you? What has happened for you in the past one year? Comment it here or write you own post. I love reading about all your journeys.
Hope everyone is having an enjoyable hump day 🙂
