Now let's just be clear, when I started my racing I never really had the interest of following a training program but if that is what you want to do then go for it. But if here is what I told her and what I will tell all of you novices.

"Keep your dream in front of you. Never let it go regardless of how far-fetched it might seem."
I am constantly inspired but so many athletes in the world today. Those who run marathons and triathlons especially. But none inspires me more than those individuals with disabilities.

"True Success" in this world is not determined by how much money you make, or by how many possessions you have. But by the positive impact you have on other people as you work towards your goals and dreams in life.
It's official, I am hooked.
Even though it was a rather stressful weekend due to getting my bike to Florida, it ended with the most amazing experience and the most fun I have had in any race. On Sunday April 1st, I ran my first ever triathlon in sunny south Florida, a place where I called home for 3 years on the infamous south beach.
Going into the race I was more nervous about the bike just because I had been practicing in the countryside of Maryland where the elevation can get up to 1500 ft above sea level compared to Miami which is at sea level, so it was a big difference in speed. That and I was nervous about getting a flat.
