2015 Plans


I haven’t posted in weeks. Not that I don’t have anything to say it’s just that finding the time to type it out is more than I can handle most days. Next year  want to be in the position to do more video posting. I can talk with out a doubt and without a problem! I will be tweaking this blog process and getting myself ready to take my blogging to the next step. So be patient. I shall return!

Brick City MasterSwim 2015


BrickCity Master Swim meeting

Brick City Master Swim meeting

Yesterday we had our first planning meeting for 2015.  Took pictures of our 2014 medals (Roz Kelley in the pink with her New York Marathon medal) and made lots of swim and triathlon training plans too. We have lofty goals and invite you to join us at JFK pool in Newark, New Jersey. Brick City Masterswim is calling!.

 

My Path To Triathlon


So how exactly did I get here? An admitted lifelong couch potato I have had episodic bouts of fitness over the last 62 years but nothing consistent enough to call a way of life. Honestly I’m not sure how I got here. I guess Roz was the biggest moving force. She took the rest of us to a Triwomen meeting and we began our triathlon journey. When I began swimming with my team BrickCity Masterswim, my intention was to improve my swimming and that’s it. The next thing you know I am volunteering at Iron Girl, Sandy Hook and I became intrigued. The next year I signed up and due to health issues I couldn’t do it. This year I did two sprints.

After spending time with my swim family it just seemed like a natural progression. I swore that if I just finished both times, I wouldn’t do it again but I’m getting ready to sign up for 2015. Perhaps this has become my new way of life.
