While I might be extremely crazy, I have to do this. 9 weeks puts the pressure on. In this amount of time I have to prepare. I like having goals. For the next 9 weeks I will be able to keep this goal. It is obtainable.
As a first time tri'er I had to sign up for a race that I could actually complete. Remember, I only have 9 weeks. So, a 300 yard swim, followed by a 10 mile bike ride and finished with a 3 mile run. Totally doable.
And, if I manage to complete this, I will be able to check off Numero Tres on my lists of 100 things!
