the beginning

This is just the beginning of my blog, not necissarily my journey.
My journey is my life, which just so happens to center around racing triathlons right now.
While I was riding my mountainbike through the mud and rain last weekend for 2 1/2 hours, it dawned on me how far fetched this activity would have sounded to me a few years ago.  What happened to the good ol' days of fair weather riding?  It was about 4 months ago when I decided to rip off my comfort blanket (good job, family and friends) and dedicate my life for a few years to focus on racing.  Now I'm surrounded by people who think these crazy adventures are just another day in paradise.  Most days I feel like a rediculously lazy underacheiver, which realistically is a far cry from the truth.  But, that's what I get for wanting to surround myself with triathletes!!!
Yesterday was an easy day of training, the second to last day of my "rest week"...an hour run and some core strengthening.  The rest of the day was spent trying to figure out what to do with my car that I can no longer afford and trying to stay tough.  In case you've never tried it, I will go ahead and let you in on a secret...chasing your dreams isn't easy!  Living them makes it worth it :)
