It’s fun to read everyone’s year-end posts and see the excitement and anticipation about a new year and all the hope that brings. But really…did today feel any different than yesterday? In my case, the only thing different was that I woke up pissed off after all the neighbors shot off illegal fireworks last night, waking us up and freaking out our dogs. Yes, I was the crazy lady in her bathrobe yelling at people in the driveway at midnight.
Anyway, from my perspective, it’s always exciting to see more friends get into endurance sports and specifically triathlon. You may remember my high school buddy Jenn, who was a great swimming and riding partner this year in my IM training.
She graduated nursing school this past spring and started work in the ER this fall. With all of that finally set up, Jenn was ready – starting today, she is working with Jen Harrison and training for her first triathlons this year! Yay!
Jenn started a blog (Will Train For Wine And Chocolate) to chronicle her newbie triathlete adventures, so add her to your blog readers and give her a little love and encouragement! She’s going to have an awesome year with some great challenges (for me, the biggest challenge would be combining tri training with working the night shift in the ER!). I can’t wait to see her success out there!
