September 14th, 11:59pm, 2009. My finger hovered over the refresh button. Was I crazy? Could I really be a half-ironman triathlete? The distances were crazy, 2km swim, 90km ride, 21km ride all with time limits for each leg. 90km, about an hour in a car. Me, overweight and never trained… Cycling? Training through winter in Saskatchewan, lakes for ice skating not swimming, trails for cross country skiing, bike lanes filled with snow. Would I brave the -40 days to train? Would my family support me? Would I be able to find the time? I’m still asking myself why I pressed refresh?
