I Swam! I Biked! I Ran! I TR(I/ied)!

Flashback to a year ago, it never crossed my mind that I would be venturing the world of multi-sport. I was happy with running (and still is), why would I get out of my comfort zone? I’m afraid to swim, I’m afraid that I would drown, and this was the scenario since then. But thanks to Erick for convincing me to enroll in swimming lessons last year. (Click here for my story) And ever since then I have enjoyed swimming, but there’s still a part of me that is afraid especially of deep water, but there is no fear that one cannot overcome.Β 

I have high regards to triathletes, and it’s been my dream of being one. That’s why when a Tri Simulations was announced in Takbo.ph forum, I eagerly signed up for it. Even though I wouldn’t be joining Animo Triathlon this coming weekend yet, I decided to participate in the simulation. I have done duathlon, and it’s my first time to transition from swimming to biking.

Tri Simulation Participants

It was a nice day for a swim, a nice day to tri and all of us were excited for the race, Ellen briefed us and Pepsi took pictures of us, thanks guys. Some did the sprint distance while I did the mini-sprint. Most of the participants are members of Team Endure, a team that was formed by multi-sport athletes, and the honor was mine sharing the pool and the road with all of you. πŸ™‚

Getting ready to start

I was excited to start and get this over with. Let me just share this picture of one of the my most memorable day, you can see my big smile at the run portion that I really enjoyed the simulations. I just hope that I would get comfortable soon with road bike so that I can race using one. I have lots of training to do, I must have the discipline that a triathlete has, but for now let me just say:

I SWAM! I BIKED! I RAN! I TR(I/ied)! πŸ˜€

Swim — Bike — Run

I enjoyed my first “tri”, enjoyed the company of friends. Next post on tri would be a race triathlon. πŸ™‚

  1. Hi Let! Swim – bike – run sounds tough but it sure looks fun. Being a tri – athlete is not yet part of my plan, because I don’t know how to swim… yet. I agree, there is no fear that can’t be overcome. πŸ™‚ It’s always great to test your limits, you’ll be amazed at how much you are capable of.
