What in the world am I thinking?!

Lately I have been really struggling with where I should place my focus this summer. I love running without a doubt and am never in a bad mood while doing it. But golf was my first love and is still a huge passion of mine. So with my last planned race coming up in a week and a half I had started debating what sport I should really focus on. There is no way that I would give up one completely, but simply place more emphasis on one and do the other purely for fun.

I have pretty much decided to focus on the golf this summer, but a third idea has crept into my mind: triathlon. Now, I have never been a huge fan of bicycles. Not sure why, but I have tended to prefer running to biking. Apparently, this could present a bit of a problem when it comes to doing a triathlon. So I purchased an old road bike for really cheap and will spend the summer riding it around a little just trying to get familiar with a bike again. It is true; you never forget how to, but it certainly is a lot scarier than it was before.

Over the summer I am going to try to dedicate myself to golfing, getting in better physical shape, swimming, running, and will just get comfortable on a bike so that hopefully I can start actual training in the fall. Perhaps I should try to squeeze my job in there as well. :)

What about you? Any plans on changing the routine this summer? Let me know. In the meantime, I will see you all on the trail! -T


  1. Aha - you finally caught the triathlon bug! I was terrified of the bike part of the Danskin, but it turned out to be exhilarating!

  2. Yeah, we shall see what happens. I am meeting up with Sara tonight to get a little guidance on how to ride a bike. Hopefully Strawberry Shortcake, my bike, will become a little more familiar with each other.
