I’m starting to think this should be in the past tense. I was a triathlete. I have competed in one triathlon since 2008. One. I told myself I was going to take a break when I went back to school, but that was in the fall of 2008. The one triathlon I did I signed up for on a whim during a snowstorm in DC.
When I took my “break” from triathlons I became a runner and somehow have never turned back. One half marathon turned into a marathon which turned into another half marathon and another marathon. You all know how it goes.
I am a swimmer! I started swimming competitively at age 9. I love swimming. I can’t remember the last time I was in a pool.
I had thought 2012 was going to be the year I did a half-Ironman. Hahahaha, No.
The new plan is to do one or two sprints this year.
I pay for a gym membership that has a pool. I really can do more than run. I know without a doubt I can do this. I need to do this. I want to do this. I am adding this to my 2012 goals.
I will be a triathlete again.
Now which ones should I do?
