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.
