I have no idea what I have gotten myself into! In 82 days, I will be racing in my first ever triathlon!
Oh, and a few more things: it will be my first ever race! I am not a strong swimmer and don’t have a pool. I run a 12-13-minute mile. My bike is a $17 mountain bike from Goodwill that is a little rusted and too big for me. So, who am I to think that I can enter a triathlon?
I started running 12 weeks ago and could barely make it two doors down from our house, but I still felt like God was calling me to run to glorify Him. I was not sure what that looked like, but I knew that I am the child of a great and mighty God, who loves to show up and show out.
Each week, I have grown more and more amazed with how much farther and faster I can go. I know that it is not the results of my effort, but of my God. He has used running to help me meet a few of my neighbors and even get the opportunity to pray with one of them. I know that if He called me to run this race, He will help me complete it!
For the next 12 weeks, I hope to keep you updated on my progress and I cannot wait to see what God has in store this summer!
Onward! Upward! For the Glory of Christ!
