Life changes

A lot has happened since the last time I wrote. Among other things, I have:
  • Kept my weight off for 6 months
  • Moved to New Orleans
  • Started medical school
  • Turned 30!!!
  • Signed up for a half-Ironman triathlon
That last point is the main reason I'm back. A few classmates and I were talking about doing the half-Ironman here in April and I kind of got suckered into it.

By "suckered into it" I mean that I talked them into signing up and then couldn't talk my way out of signing up myself. Also, I was getting tired of running and biking with no purpose, so this kills two birds with one stone.

If all goes well on April 19, 2015, I will...
  1. Swim farther than ever in my life,
  2. Bike farther than ever in my life, and
  3. Run farther than ever in my life.
All of this back-to-back-to-back.

Stay tuned for actual posts about how everything has been going because I do intend on writing about this. It's definitely going to be a challenge, but I'm actually very excited!
