J-Pants and I have decided to do a triathlon this May. I'm fine on swimming and biking, but I hate running so that makes me a little nervous.
In 9th grade my friend Jessie and I joined the swimming team. At our very first meet I dove in the water and my goggles fell off. I ended up finishing several minutes behind even the last person. My family was there to cheer me on but it felt humiliating. That was the last time I ever competitively swam. I love swimming but this showed me that maybe I should just stick to wave pools and lazy rivers. Either way, this time I can just go at my own pace and I should be fine, right? Right?!
