I’ve never been an athlete, neither in school nor as an adult. A friend wanted us to do a triathlon for our 40th birthdays. At first I couldn’t run more than 10 minutes without walking, but I enjoyed training and pushing myself to do something well outside of my comfort zone. After that, I found Team Z. There are people of all skill levels on the team, and everyone I’ve met is friendly and helpful. During races everyone cheers until the last person has crossed the finish line. I do my swim, bike and run training with the team as many times per week as I feel comfortable with, I do a few triathlons each year, and I have made some close friends. I’m still one of the last people to finish a race, but that’s not the point. I am a triathlete. –
