When I get to the edge of the pool for my workout I never test the water – I just jump in. That’s kind of how I roll in life, too. If I spend too much time testing and thinking and considering things I can just rationalize my way out of taking action and that’s not good. I can’t say that being impetuous has never hurt me but by and large it works.
So today I looked up flights to Phoenix and they weren’t too expensive and so I held my nose, squeezed my eyes shut and bought a plane ticket to Phoenix on 10/26 and then I went to the SOMA site and registered for the Quarterman. Arizona here I come!
That will make 5 triathlons I’m doing this year. I’ve also got 3 1/2 marathons, 1 swim across SF Bay and a couple of 5Ks. I’m thinking I need to toss a 10K in there, too. I’m still wondering what happened to my summer of hiking and kayaking and not training. I must have accidentally kicked it under the bed when I got up to un-hydrate during the night sometime last spring.
