In five days I will be competing in my first half marathon. While I have always been inspired by those who take on these type of challenges I never thought I would participate in one myself. Truthfully, before I started doing triathlons two years ago I would never have believed I would have accomplished all that I have. It really is all about taking one step in front of the other and not letting fear stand in your way. My friends Meg and Annegret are doing the race with me. Experiencing this with them will make this event all the more memorable. Here is a picture of the three of us after our first 10 mile run.
