I was super nervous about trying my 1st triathlon. Keyword: TRYING!!!
I was talked into it by my 62 year old friend who is also a cancer survivor. She suggested at yoga that we all do one together. Our ring leader even recruited another friend who still had to learn to swim before the race. My thought was, at least swimming was something I was average at.
This event was technically a “sprint” triathlon which meant that we would be swimming .4 miles, biking 14 miles and running 3 miles. I thought I could do 2/3 of the race but the swim was super intimidating.
