Out of the Mouth of Babes

So my God son sent me a text this week
“They have a triathlon in Jackson on June 3rd. You have to swim in the reservoir, bike I think 24 miles, and run 10k what ever that means. It starts at 7:00 and ends at noon. That should be more than enough time for you!”
So I was tickled and thought he has more faith in me than I have in myself or he just wants me to come home.  Well I messaged my best friend, his mom. She laughs and states that he thinks that I rock.
Well, I do rock. Not to be conceived but” I can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens me” So I texted him back and told him four days is a little short notice. That I can’t get to Mississippi and am not trained for the swim part of the race. I tell him  next year.
I can’t lie to my Godson so I am going to give me my all to train and do that triathlon next year. So my plan is to take some swim classes. ( What will I do about my hair- my main concern). Also plan to do some duathlons . Well there is one on July 30, 2017. Also I need at least a road bike, versus my hybrid. I need some help from my triathlete friends

Ok thanks to my Godson I am going to conquer my FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real) with the help of a few people ( it does take a village). Also swimming will be great cross training as I prepare for my Marathon in New York.vector-line-flat-triathlon-logo-symbol-black-white-figure-triathletes-swimming-cycling-running-sport-label-65358802
