"What I can say, is when you’re running you find that despite the fact that you are feeling pain, you find that if you try to show the physical appearance of happiness you find this generation of energy inside your body. So, even if you are feeling a lot of pain, try to feel happy."
—Wilson Kipsang, 2014 London Marathon Champion

Last night, I was pretty serious about my upcoming goal: look really good in a bikini.
But then we found the Auckland triathlon and watched it all afternoon. We browsed REI clearance racks and found a tri suit in my size, for a ridiculously good price. The boyfriend made it clear that if I wanted it, it would be mine. tri-my-best is quite a guy!
I’d planned to train with him pretty intensely after my half in May, but I didn’t know if I could actually DO a tri. Running? Sure. Cycling? I’ve been eyeing the Dolce for the last few weeks and have been saving up. But swimming is going to take a lot of work.
Screw my superficial bikini goal. I want to be a triathlete this year. Not an Iron Man or anything close to it, but someday maybe.
Who’s got two thumbs and has the coolest girlfriend ever? THIS GUY
So happy to see her as excited about triathlons as I am. Let the training commence!
This should literally be my life motto.
But actually this perfectly summarizes my life
Here is some great swim stroke advice that I found in Triathlete magazine.
