I was more recently introduced to the triathlon world. (Even more recently than that have I finally learned to spell it!) I don’t recall through whom, but it has become a big part of my husbands world. Before he was just intensely focused on running. Now it’s swimming, biking and running!
As if one sport wasn’t enough, now I get to listen to three sports wrapped into one.
Okay okay. I do follow Christ Lieto, the best American triathlete on Twitter.
As much as I like to rag on my husband, his obsession and how much it costs us, I am immensely proud of him, the goals he not only sets but accomplishes. He is passionate and a hard worker and I want him to go for his heart’s desires!
Therefore, I was extremely proud of him last weekend when he competed in his very first triathlon. It is the smallest of them all, a mini tri. It contains 1K swim (.6 of a mile), 9 mile bike on hill terrain and 5K run (3.1 miles).
I admit, when he took off on his swim my eyes teared up a bit and my heart was proud! (Can you imagine what I’ll be like when Velda accomplishes something? I’ll be a complete mess! She will be utterly embarrassed and I’ll love it!)

I care. And so I tri.
