I guess they’re right. Triathlons are addicting. It’s more than being an excellent swimmer, cyclist and runner, though…

It’s setting the bar higher than normal.
It’s being intentional about meeting goals.
It’s the grunt of working hard… consistently.
It’s the feeling of accomplishment.
It’s the excitement of being part of a team.
It’s the challenge of time management.
It’s the rush of an unknown adventure.
It’s the process of self refinement.
It’s the possibility of // maybe // inspiring someone someday.

All of the above is why I’m drinking the triathlon Kool-aid.

So my tri venture continues this Spring…

Saturday, May 3: Lifetime Fitness Indoor Triathlon – Parker, CO
Sunday, May 17: Colfax Marathon – Denver, CO
Saturday, June 7: Crescent Moon Triathlon – Aurora, CO
Saturday, June 28: Lake to Lake Triathlon – Loveland, CO

In grade school many years ago, I came across this scripture as part of a “choose your favorite Bible verse” assignment. I just randomly chose this one, but over the years it’s become my life verse and constant reminder of why I do what I do.

“Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.” I Cor. 9:24

I have more than early prizes to win. There’s a heavenly one out there, too!
