So I wanted to do an Ironman for my 30th birthday- no easy task. Since you can't really go from being a tri-bunny as it were to Ironman overnight, I signed up for a half ironman this year with Team in Training.
What is TNT? Basically, they train you for an endurance event in exchange for you fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. So aside from swimming 1.2 miles, biking 56 miles, and running a half marathon, I'm raising $4400 for a great cause.
The first practice is tomorrow and I'm really nervous. It feels like the first day of classes in a new school, except instead of pretty new pens and binders, I'll have a swim cap and goggles. Wish me luck and bilateral breathing!
