So it's silly time of the year again and over the weekend I decided to go ahead and commit to partaking in a sprint triathlon in May 2013.

Its silly because I dont have a bike yet and havent run a whole lot due to a painful knee and a twisted ankle.

 

I planned on writing a post every week or month to help keep me honest with the training

 

 

Today was day 1of a 22week journey,   Started with a 20 minute run and a 200yard swim.

 

Everything felt good - went to bed after 10 minutes of yoga,

 

Looking forward to this trip

How to teach sportsmanship

Let me start off with a hello to the group. I've been a long time lurker and this will be my first post.Onward.I'm a father of two. A daughter of 8 and a son of 5. Five and a half if you were to ask him.Up to this point in our children's lives, their exposure to sports was limited to gymnastic lessons, until a few weeks ago when we became a soccer family.Tonight at soccer practice my son had a pretty big meltdown which I would love to shrug off as a one time event, but being his father, I have…See More

Brown Fox replied to John Muir's discussion What do you keep in your trunk?
"In my trunk I have an 18th century tent, a Boy Scout cot, two wool blankets, a sleeping bag, a mallet for tent spikes, rope, a flat of bottled water and a first aid kit. I suppose there's a spare tire and tire iron in there somewhere, too."
