with a friend, followed by a bike ride brought me joy as well as exhaustion early this morning. It was fun to run with my friend and chat a bit before we got too tired to talk. Then when I finished up my run it was still pretty early, (we ran at 5:20), so I decided to go for a bike ride. It was such a pretty and peaceful ride. I saw the sun coming up through the clouds as I rode.
Probably, but the only reason I did it was because I am going to be doing a triathlon on Labor Day. And I am starting to realize how quickly that will be coming up. I am also realizing how difficult it will be. Thankfully it is what is called a Sprint Triathlon, although, I will most definitely not be sprinting it. I will be working on starting and finishing it. :) I will have to do a 300 m swim, 15 mile bike ride, and a 3.1 mile run. Yikes, I am starting to sweat again just thinking about it.
I am excited about it though. I have always wanted to do one. It has been on my bucket list for several years, but I have always come up with reason as to why I couldn't do it at the time. So when I saw that this one worked into my schedule, and I had been working out fairly regularly, I knew I had to give it a go.
