In August last year, I contemplated registering for the Cold Storage Triathlon 2013 in the Mini category but eventually chickened out. The excuse I gave myself was that I did not have ample time to prepare – the event was slightly more than a month away then, and I have no prior open water swimming experience, and neither was I even swimming regularly. Furthermore, I daresay a part of me was simply too lazy to put in the training required to not end up as a casualty mid-race.
I will be attempting in 2014, what I did not start in 2013.
Come 7 September 2014, I will be participating in the Freshman category: 200m Swim, 10km Cycle, 2.4km Run.
Ok, you can stop boo-ing me now.
It might be a tiny distance to some, but it’s good enough for me.
