Well I am here to tell you all that if you set your mind to it you can do anything! If you would have asked me three years ago “would you do a triathlon?” I would still be laughing, I hated running and I sucked at swimming so why on gods green earth would I ever want to?
But then I saw the movie the bucket list and started my own , one of the first things were a marathon why I hated running did you now just read that? But hell Oprah did it , if she can do it I sure as hell can do it! So I trained and trained and I did it! Even with a swollen and bruised ankles I taped it jp anx did it!
So I always thought it would be cool to say I did a triathlon but again did you read, I cant swim so I looked for the smallest swim when I found one I started training and yes I looked like a drown cat in the pool , it was a sorry site to see, people almost called 911 , yes it was that bad but I kept trying and every day for months, so on Thursday night when I was packing my car to go I smashed my pinkie toe and broke it , my friends said I should cancel. That wasnt in my vocabulary I was going and the morning of the triathlon there were pizza size jelly fish (I can not make this up people!) They said you dont have to do the swim , I didn’t train this long to do that! So with wrapped up toe I swam and yes I did get bite in the ass by one (okay I didnt say this was going to easy!) I finished the swim , peed on myself and jumped on my bike where I made up some time, then comes the run and I start and the foe is really hurting, I put on my music say a prayer and dig deep then run half way through the skies turn black and it pours on my head, I yelled “bring it on I will not quit, give it your best shot! Not a divorce, a move, a horrible ex, a broken toe, stung ass or pouring rain or lighting will stop me !are you listening??I will finish!”
And I did I crossed that finish line beat up but smiling from ear to ear knowing I did it! And later when they posted the results I placed 3 out of 18 in my age group 40-49 no really?was my thoughts too its okay if you said it lol I wanted to just cross the finish line before dark that was my goal placing anything besides last wasn’t even a thought to me so that was the icing on the cake for me ! Wow how cool! I put my mind on something, I trained, I believed I could do it, I was determined and had perseverance and faith just like Bishop said and I did it!! So what do you think you do think hou cant do? Try it you will amaze yourself!
