Crazy? No. Awesome.

Since joining Team Fight, I’ve met a lot of cool people. But there are a few who really impress me. At first I thought they were crazy. Now I think they’re crazy dedicated.

Who are they? People who can’t swim who sign up for triathlons.

I know, right? The first part of a tri, the most dangerous part, the scariest part (in my opinion) and they have no idea what they’re doing. I admit, I teased Kim when she told me she couldn’t swim after we signed up for two triathlons, but I’ve seen the girl in the pool. She can swim. Maybe she’s not super experienced at it, but she probably won’t drown anytime soon.

But that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about people who can’t swim whatsoever. People who get in the pool and can maybe make it five feet before clinging to the wall.

I think these people are AWESOME.

And maybe a little crazy, but good things can come from crazy decisions. I talk about not knowing if I can complete the triathlon, but I know how to swim and I know how to bike. I’m not great at either of those things, but I know how. I can’t imagine having the courage to sign up for a race where I didn’t think I could do part of it.

Of course, there is plenty of training time left, and these teammates of mine are going to do amazingly. I give them all the credit in the world for taking the leap. And I can’t wait to share the finish with them!
