training wheels.

A few months back I did a strange thing. I thought to myself, you've done a few races, you should probably sign up for a triathlon. So then, I did. This is especially strange timing because I still have this list of 33 things and compete in a triathlon isn't even on the list. I dutifully printed up a training program and (mostly) plugged away at the running and biking portions and completely ignored the swimming. Then Claire got sick. Then I got sick. Then Mister got sick. No one was running or biking or swimming. No one was moving. In four weeks I will be swimming and biking and running and attempting not to drown or crash or fall.

Thankfully, we are no longer sick, so I guess it is time to dust off the training program and get moving.
