Sorry it has been awhile…life has been hectic, but good! So much has happened since my last blog post. I will try to fill you in on the details. First and most importantly, I reached my $2500 goal in April!!!! Thank you all for your generous contributions and support! I was so happy that I actually went above my goal. By time I deposit all the contributions I will be near $2800!
Here are a few other highlights:
-I got a road bike! As you can see by the picture..it is awesome! 105 Shimano components…mmm lovely for a starter bike. As you can tell, I have turned into a bike lover.
-I had a nasty bout of tendinitis in my right knee..I was out of commission for a good 2-3 weeks. Unfortunately, it has flared up AGAIN! So, I am out of commission with the running and biking until it feels better. At least I have the meds from the first doctor’s visit
-I am struggling with the open water swim. I had a panic attack during my first open water swim. Well, I wouldn’t call it a swim, more of an attempt to swim. Our poor coach Sarah was being so patient with me…but I freaked out. I eventually had to get out of the water and get in her kayak…sad. It was just too much. The dark yuck water, the depth, and nothing to hold on to in case of emergency. I am still working on this and hope to beat it soon. This is the hardest thing I have ever done…the only thing I am more freighted of is roller coasters.
-Keep posted…I am almost there!!
