Ever since I started competing in endurance sports back in 2007, I've really enjoyed the training, dedication, and overall challenge of this style of racing. After crossing the finish line in my first Ironman triathlon, I knew that I wanted to race in many more endurance events.
Sometimes it feels to me like life is a race that I didn't sign up for it. There's no map for it. There's no way to train on the course, or really just to train at all. How can anyone expect all of that? I just have to wait to let it unfold, including all the hills that I didn't expect.
