In it to Finish it!
OK, so I did it! I did the triathlon! I had 2 goals: 1)Finish 2)Don't Stop. And finish I did! It felt so good to cross that finish line. Now, I know you've all been wanting to know alllll about it, so here it goes from the beginning. I spent 2 months training diligently, completely consumed by this thing. I had a strict training schedule that I found online and about 3 weeks in I ditched that and made up my own plan. To be as big as I am, I am actually in pretty decent physical shape I determined. The swim part was 200 yards, which I had done loads of times in right at 5 minutes. The biking was 10 miles, which I had done a few times before, but as you know, I had some bicycle problems. Luckily my good friend Jason let me borrow his bike for the race. The running was 2 miles, which I accomplished a long time ago. The night before the race my mom came in town and we went to the packet pickup and informational session. It was so cool picking up my packet! It had my name on it and everything!
