Long journeys start with one step, they say. I guess I’ve taken the first one now, signing up with Team in Training to compete in the St. Anthony’s Triathlon in St. Petersburg, Florida.

It’s terrifying, and exhilerating, and I’m not sure exactly how I feel beyond that.

Excited, I guess. Intimidated. I’ve never done anything like this before – not the distance, not the fundraising, not the coaching.

We’ll see how it goes, I guess. The official start date is Dec. 6. I’ve got to start getting ready, and I’m so not motivated to exercise right now. Still. I don’t want to be too embarrassed next month!
