First Blog Ever

So I finally caved. Here it is, my first ever blog. I'm not sure who will end up reading this besides my family, but maybe there will be a follower out there who will find my updates interesting or entertaining even though they aren't related to me.

There are several reasons I have decided now, at age 29 - many years after the creation of the blog when almost everyone (except me of course) has a smart phone, tweets 10 times a day, and keeps a record of their life online - to finally start my own blog. The main reason is that I want to be a successful professional triathlete and part of that means getting my name and story out there. There, I said it. No more sandbagging, pretending I hope to some day race as a pro. It's time to lay it all out there and admit I want to be good. I also think I have had a pretty unique (or at least kind of unique) road to get to where I am today. I didn't blow my competition out of the water in my first race and I'm still slowly progressing in the sport. I am also still pretty green when it comes to gear, racing, training, nutrition, the list goes on and on, but I'm learning. I want to share that learning process in hopes that I might educate, motivate, inspire, or at least entertain anyone who decides to follow this blog.

I can't promise my blogs will be funny or even interesting, but they will be honest and from the heart.

Thanks for reading my inaugural blog...more to come soon!
