Tri-ing something new – My first triathlon

I have officially registered for the 7 Bridges Marathon and my first triathlon!  S#!% just got real!

I have talked about wanting to do a triathlon for a while and I finally broke down and registered for the Girls Tri-it-on sprint triathlon in June.  The only problem – I don’t really swim.

I made my first attempt at traversing through the water in a manner that puts life gards on edge swimming today.  The good news – I can drag myself through the water for 200 meters.  The bad news – I SUCK!  It only took 15 minutes and two 30 second breaks.  whomp…whomp…whomp.

I have less than a month to get better at it.  Its a good think I have the bike and run part down…well, if I can learn to take my hand off the handlebars long enough to get my water bottle…baby steps, right?
