Just checking in here with some update from my personal life.
I have decided to participate in a triathlon, well one of many with the first being Challenge Cape Town‘s 4:18:4. It is only a 400m open water swim, 18km cycle and a 4km run. The intention is to work my way up to the real event one year later which is a whopping 3.8km swim, 180km cycle and a 42.2km run.
Sooo, if anyone has any advice please feel free to comment away.
Why do this? You are probably thinking. Welll, the thing is that I made a life altering decision to get my health in order, and since I tend to take things to the extreme, one thing led to another and I found myself in the best physical condition of my life – something that opened the door to participate in events such as triathlons.
And I am amped about; super excited.
The only thing I find completely daunting is the financial investment to get kitted out for this. Stupid me, I sold my bike about 6 years ago. Now I am faced with the prospect of having to fork out cash I do not have to buy a slippery wetsuit and a fancy bike. Fortunately I am able to borrow a bike and a wetsuit albeit a surfing wetsuit with the sleeves cut off.
If you have gotten this far in blurb about participating then I ask to hang on for a moment to hear out a proposition.
Like I said earlier, getting kitted out is expensive. My wife supports me in this endeavor but it would not be very fair to her or my kids to hand out cash for the crazy goal that should be used for other things. So I ask, that if you would like to participate in getting me to my first Triathlon and be a witness to my journey, I ask if you would please help me out in a small way; anything from $10 and up by a group of helpful contributors would empower me to get the wetsuit I need.
