RSR 34 – The RunSkipRun cheering section arrives

By Skip

Episode number 34 of my daily triathlon training diary….

Today my family arrives to town to cheer me on. Before they show up I got my run and my swim in for the day. The swim was just a bonus because I enjoy swimming in this water so much! Actually, I just need to get in every day, even if it is for only 15 minutes, like today. I am noticing the professionals start to arrive into town… it is very obvious when you see them out there on the swim and especially the run.

Getting excited and so happy to have my family here to support me!

About

So if you have read any of the blog thus far you know a little bit about me… I can not be told what to do and I push myself about as far as I can be pushed!

But how did I get here and why? Well, that is what this page is about.

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
