Triathlete in the making

Hey everyone! Guess what arrived at my doorstep today?

I finally got a tri suit! 🙂 I’ve been in the market for one but most places were ridiculously expensive and I’m a broke college student. However, a friend sent me a link to a website called the clymb and found that they had most of their tri suits on clearance! 😀 I got this baby for 70 bucks including shipping. I was really impressed with how quickly this delivered. I was afraid I’d be waiting a few weeks. Anyways, I tried it on and it fits perfectly. I’ll be taking it out for a test run probably on Friday. 🙂

I’ve been really surprising myself with how committed I am to swimming. I used to have such a difficult time getting myself to get to the pool but now I actually look forward to it. Don’t get me wrong, running will always be my #1 sport but swimming is getting better. Today I started my day off with a swim and felt really refreshed. It just goes to show that a little effort will pay off in the long run! (no pun intended heh)

In other fitness related news, the Boston Marathon is happening in 1.5 weeks! I’m seriously considering skipping classes because, I mean, it’s pretty much a religious holiday, right? 😉 I’m always super inspired by the athletes who run the Boston Marathon and I hope to be there someday. #BostonStrong 🙂

Some non-fitness related news (yes, I have a life outside of fitness 😉 ), I’ve been REALLY busy with school. Today I gave my final presentation for my education class which relieved a lot of stress. I also got a second job at Sam’s Club which has been keeping me very busy. Between my two jobs I’m basically working full-time while going to school full-time and training for a triathlon. It’s been crazy but I’m managing. Jeremy has been even more supportive lately which has really helped me get through everything. Love you babe! :* That’s pretty much been my life lately!

What advice to you have to give to a person doing their first triathlon?
