Should I Tri?

It's a tiny idea that's beginning to form inside my head. I enjoy swimming, biking and running. What if I started training for a triathlon? It could be another great adventure on my journey to a more healthy weight and lifestyle.

I did a little experiment this week. On Monday night I hopped on my bike and rode hard for 12 miles. Then, I jumped off, rehydrated and ran 2.75 miles. The first half mile of the run felt incredibly odd since the muscles in my legs didn't want to work. Once I convinced them I wasn't letting up everything seemed to fall into place, and I completed my test run. I think I can...

How does one train for a triathlon? Do you change clothes after the swim? I have so many questions. Fortunately, I've found a woman who's been where I am and is actively blogging on the internet After reading some of her blog entries, I've decided to seriously consider entering a triathlon. I would start with a sprint or short course event. Should I tri?


  1. Hey Angie! First off, congrats on your success so far. You look great, and I'm so proud of you and the progress you've made. I enjoy reading your blog. Another blog that I read is Jennifer Bushbaum Schmitt's, and with your most recent blog post, thought you might want to check it out:
    Best wishes,

  2. Thank you, Tonya. I read some of Jennifer's blog last night, and I'm going to add it to my regular reading list. It's encouraging to find like minded moms balancing family life with personal improvement.
