Throwback Thursday – Triathlon Bracelet

I’m 43 years old.  Its strange as you get older, you feel exactly the same as you did 20 years ago (maybe we more wisdom and experience) but you look in the mirror and there are lines on your face, and your hair is going grey.  I remember someone telling me this when I was younger, and now I totally get it.  When we were young Gary and I did triathlons.tri (2)

We trained hard and competed … I was racing when I fell pregnant with our first daughter.  I did like the variety of training Triathlon gave me.  When I first started I was not a very good swimmer at all.  Learning to swim at the age of 20 is pretty hard work … but, it can be done.  And I did improve over time to become a competant swimmer.  It was always my weakest leg however, so I spent the race chasing down the good swimmers as I would never lead out of the water.  As a kid I always loved to ride a bike, and even rode to school during high school … as walking just took too long, so the transition to riding with triathlon was easy … and I have always loved riding since.  I started running from a young age.  I did athletics from the age of 7, and i do believe it is the most versitile sport … every time I holiday I always take my running shoes, its such a great way to take in the scenery and surroundings in ways you would not experience.  Running along Kuta beach, or up and down the hills of Ubud.  Dodging the people walking to work in China, freezing on a cold morning in Arizona, or the next afternoon nearly dying of heat exhaustion when it was 45 degrees, seeing the sites around Central Park … its such a great experience!

Its fun to still be connected to this great sport through my business now.  The Triathlon and Running bracelets give wrist inspiration to those out there chasing their goals.  swimbikerunbclt
