No backing out now!

Days 23-25 Prompt: Whether you are male or female, do you consider yourself a guy or gal with GUTS? To me, having guts means that you’re strong and brave. Think about how you fit into this description and read my post to see what I’m doing to be stronger and feel better about myself and my abilities! You can do it too!

Well, I did it. I signed up for a triathlon this October.

This is definitely outside of my comfort zone. I haven’t seriously exercised since high school, so being involved in an organized race is pretty daunting. For me, it’s taking a lot of GUTS to go through with it. And since I’ve already signed up, I can’t change my mind now.

I mentioned a couple of posts ago that due to some joint pain, I’ve been forced to slow down my training plan. That’s still how things are now, but I figure, especially since this will be my first race, making great time isn’t as important as just finishing the race is. And once I make it through this one, if I like it, I’ll continue training and plan on being more competitive in the future.

I’m very excited about it and I can’t wait for that feeling of accomplishment when I cross the finish line.

Sit down, stay a while. I'd love to hear from you.
