Why I TRI
I vividly remember the day I was introduced to triathlon. I was thirteen. My dad and I watched the Ironman recap on Wide World of sports. I watched a pink clad mother in her thirties fall to her face and crawl toward the finish. I was filled with admiration. The next day in Sunday school, our teacher asked us to make a crest with lifetime goals in each quadrant. Thinking of the determination of the woman and the major accomplishment she pursued, I decided to list completing the Ironman as my athletic goal. At the time, I had never run before. I could barely swim. I didn't own a bike.
