New adventure!

Yesterday I signed up for the Aflac's Iron Girl's Triathlon. This isn't a full on triathlon but a 'sprint' triathlon. Swimming 1/2 mile, biking 24K and running 5K. Now why is this so un-ordinary for me you ask? Well, right now as of this morning I am weighing in at 205 :( I haven't been steady at the gym in, oh I'd say, 9 months. So I'm a bit.. ok.. very out of shape in any form to join and finish any type of event like this! I've talked 2 of my co-workers into joining me. I think they might be as out of shape as I am. In fact, I'm not sure they even signed up yet or not! LOL. Well, this has been my dream for quite some time. I wanted to try some of these Sprint events and maybe I'll go for something bigger. Probably not... I am after all 44 years old so I'm not exactly starting out as a spring chicken!

So, I've started a and I plan to update it with my training, achievements and pictures. Any comments are appreciated as long as they have blog Etiquette! Wish me luck!
