I'll TRI my best in 2013
A blog about tri-ing hard and enjoying every minute.

Let me introduce myself.....

Mother, wife, sister, triathlete. I did my first triathlon in Sept 2010 & have been hooked ever since. I absolutely love the challenge of putting three different disciplines together - just you against the clock. Having been involved in a lot of different sports over the years, I must say that, in my experience, the sport of triathlon is one of the most friendliest and inclusive sports I have had the pleasure of participating in.
So far this year I have entered seven sprint triathlons (the first one was yesterday - race report coming soon!), with two being open water based. My goal for 2013 was to enter an Olympic distance event however a nagging long term injury is hampering my running training so that will have to wait for next year (more on that later).
This year my aims are as follows:
  1. To follow a proper training program so that I am organised & consistent in my training.
  2. To finally overcome this bloody injury so I can reduce my run time significantly.
  3. To get rid of my spare tyre. Now that I'm finally wearing a tri suit, having a paunch is not a good look!
  4. Most importantly to have fun & enjoy my races.
So that's one down, six to go and more triathlons to enter!

Sounds like you have a great year planned! General friendliness is the best bit about triathlon I think - you'll definitely achieve aim No.4 :)
