From couch to triathlon

I don't know what I was thinking.

Well, yes I do. I read a story about someone overcoming insurmountable adversity -- someone with drive and determination -- to raise their body up and will it to compete in a triathlon. An accident had left this person partially paralyzed, but did that stop them? No sirree.

I was lying on the couch when I read the story.

The couch is my native habitat.

So, I got up, put on a hat, found some hiking shorts, donned a new pair of running shoes, and broke out with sweat just from doing all that.

The plan is (was) this:
  1. Do a 5K run
  2. Do a 20K bike ride
  3. Another 5K run
  4. Find a swimming pool to brush up on my swimming.
  5. Another run, another bike ride, then...
  6. Sprint Triathlon.
Like I said: I don't know what I was thinking.
