So I've been sitting there staring at my empty blog, totally clueless about how to start, and to my chagrin realized that I already had a follower! Time to entertain the masses and get this thing rolling... First, thanks to my little sister, Claire, for following and empty blog...now that is loyalty! This got me thinking about all the other people in my life who are so supportive of this crazy dream that I am chasing. My amazing parents who only think I'm slightly insane and, I'm sure, will think up increasingly embarrassing ways to cheer for me at my races this year. Leigh, my other sister (who is not yet following my blog, hint hint) but who started doing triathlons last year at the same time I was getting back into the sport. Someday, when we all need a good laugh, I will chronicle our first bike ride adventure through New York City, which culminated in us walking our bikes 30 blocks decked out in all our cycling gear and shoes. However, she stuck with it and is now one of my favorite training partners and I will be the one cheering hard for her in Eagleman this June. Fortunately the two of us hooked up with some great training partners last year when we moved back to North Carolina thought the IOSDT (Inside Out Delta Triathlon) who have now become our big triathlon family.
