I’m now having fun researching small triathlons. I obviously do well if I have something to work for and have a goal. I’ve found two great races that are done yearly. the first is Iron Girl which is run at Lake Lanier in May. The second is a Sprint tri (shorter one) that is in Peachtree City in August.
I actually have a friend that is running the Iron Girl this year and loves them. she started doing them b/c she has a love/hate relationship with running. and actually said that the training for it is not extreme or overwhelming.
another friend recommended this book, I flew through it and really enjoyed it.
Finished this one pretty fast on triathlons – First Triathlons: Personal Stories of Becoming a Triathlete
Already several of the stories have me in tears for good reasons.
The third book i’m reading is about running and being a mother. I already read – Run like a mother – and LOVED it
the same two ladies wrote another book called – Train like a mother – I’m only a few chapters into it but i LOVE it too.
so I’m starting to collect my info to help me with this journey. I plan on getting in shape this year and then once I hit January then I will start training for my first tri. it’s exciting, frightening and everything in between. I’ve made me a new fitness book just for triathlons. It has multiple sections so I can organize things as I get more info. Inspirational, training plans, and a journal section.
