Tomorrow I embark on a long path toward, potentially, a triathlon. For even the most accomplished athlete it is a feat; for me, a voyage. Few people actually know about my plan. While that means I don't have a mass of people cheering me on, it also means I don't have doubters and detractors. For now it is enough to battle my own doubts. The first step is to face the running head on. Running, I think, is something not so requiring of natural ability as desire and effort. What is that inspirational phrase, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Getting back into swimming, if you will pardon the pun, will be like riding a bike. And the biking will come in due time.
Tomorrow, I run.
