Well folks, I registered for my first triathlon!

The event will take place next week on Labor Day.

It's just a sprint triathlon so I think it will be fine.

350 yard swim
12 mile bike
5k run

Prior to registering I decided I had better test my swimming abilities to make sure that I wouldn't die.
I'm a pretty poor swimmer.
I realized that I am totally inept at swimming "freestyle".

I can however swim sidestroke almost indefinitely.
I easily covered the 350 yd distance, so I figured that this was enough of a green light that I could confidently register without fear of death.

It won't be pretty, but I will get through it.

I'll let you know how it goes.
