Perspective. This sport is all about perspective. I was reminded of that last night at my first Beginner Triathlon Clinic. 30-40 triathlon newbies showed up to learn tips and answer questions about what to wear, what to do and what to eat on race day. It was awesome! I love spreading the gospel of triathlon because it further promotes a healthy lifestyle and hopefully shows people that anything truly is possible. I’m reminded that this sport is supposed to be fun and exciting! It’s not always about shaving every second off your time. Sometimes it is about hugging your family members. Sometimes it is learning about chafing the hard way. Sometimes it is about surviving the swim (it’s always about that!)
Feedback was positive and I can only hope it makes an impact to those who were there! Thanks so much to the MOFOs who were there to show your support: Joe P, Joey, Rosita, Holly, Padre, Rhonda and Leslie B…Your presence and support means so much as we usher other new athletes into the world of the MOFOs!
