I know I probably chat about the "tri" thing more than some of you readers care and you probably view me as slightly obsessed. However, living where I do, with nothing more than work to focus on, this hobby gives me an outlet, an opportunity to meet people, and fills what would otherwise be wasted time or time filled with much of nothing. It's truly a little difficult to explain to someone that is not into endurance sports like triathlon and running. It is my hobby and it is part of my lifestyle. I do it because I want to be fit, I fully enjoy meeting and training with other athletes, I enjoy racing, and I needed something outside of the big, green Army machine that can take some of my effort. It actually HELPS me balance life because I do not dwell on the stresses that work can produce, and I have something to do when I am not at work. As an upper-20's single, I'd much rather put my time and effort into this than playing video games or mulling over life and dwelling on the job. Am I dedicated, yes, am I obsessed, no. This is just my outlet. It takes time, and it is exciting for me. That is why I share it. I have other things I'll put out too, and plan to do more of that in future. I am fond of writing and need to collect some of my thoughts and throw them on here.
Here are some pictures from the Disco Tri this past weekend. One of the BT'ers was out there with a great camera and took some of the fun action shots. The "official" photos are not out yet.
My transition area Having fun on the run! I tend to have a good final kick
More final kick--I really don't know where I get the final kick energy!
This next one, the bike, is my favorite by FAR!
