featured blog: Tri-ing to be Athletic

Hi everyone!
I write as TriGirl on Tri-ing to be Athletic.


I started this site back in December 2010 after finishing my second half-marathon.  My husband and I were having a lovely post-race brunch and he said to me "You know, you could do some fun pictures and start blogging about this!"  After all, any time I told my friends and family members about my experiences I always got a few laughs.

A couple of years ago I fell prey to peer pressure at the office and signed up for a triathlon. Wait. What? Yeah, it was pretty crazy.  I hadn't been on a bike since I was 10, and had quit swimming shortly after that. Oh, and I was never much of a runner.  Needless to say, starting these sports up at the ripe old age of Thirty-(stifle, mumble, mumble) was full of ridiculous moments...many of which my husband wished he could have uploaded to You Tube.


Over the past 3 years my training has evolved.  I have not a single athletic bone in my body but I am very slowly getting  better.  My site is a way for me to always find the humour in my less-than-finessed activities.


And, I've found a whole community of new friends along the way!

I am visiting for sure, as I too have ran 2 half marathons and have people constantly trying to convince me to do a tri.

I love everything about this. Except the idea of doing a Tri. I'm forced to be very athletic as part of my job, so in the meantime I avoid such exertion. But the pictures and everything else, Love.
