Great first time triathlon post, with a life lesson bonus
While enjoying lunch on a Thursday with my friend, Amy, she dropped this bombshell:
“Hey, I’m doing a triathlon this Saturday. You should join me.”
“This Saturday? As in day after tomorrow?” I laughed so hard I almost choked on my cornbread. “I haven’t ridden a bike in 20 years!”
“I’ve got an extra! And it’ll all come back to you when you hop on. Just like, well, riding a bike!”
In a lapse of sanity, I agreed.
Now to tell John. “Ahem. I’m going to do a triathlon.”
“What?” He was concerned. “How long do you plan to train?”
“A day,” I replied, trying to sound logical.
“And what’s the course?”
“1750 yard swim, 14 mile bike ride, 3.1 mile run.” I sat down, feeling suddenly tired as I said that out loud.
He smiled, shook his head and said, “Knock yourself out, Baby.”
Actually, I was afraid I might do just that.
