So it always starts with a question. Who am I, and where am I going with this.
Well in my case I’m pretty much what you’d call an average person. Average height, average age, average face, average job, not much schooling, but fairly good at what I take up. I’m just that “normal” type of people you encounter everyday on the bus to work or at the supermarket.
And then something happens. We all have our highs and lows, we all have our moments, some life defining, some we won’t remember in a couple of weeks or years. But then you find something or someone who’s daily life interests you, motivate you to push the envelope, to be an overall better person.
A couple of weeks ago I decided to turn my life around and decided to make something out of it. At least more then what it is right now. First thing you gotta do is set goals; forces you to look up to them and keep pushing. Gives you a target to chase up. Stuff happened, will I say what? I don’t know yet. Probably. But you’ll get to know me for sure.
I’m a cyclist…..actually, you know what, scratch that. I’d like to be a cyclist! I’m a commuter, I go everywhere I have to by bike. So we got a start here! Then I started to follow Fatcyclist.com. He’s one you’ll probably hear a lot about on here. Very inspiring human being.
I’ve always have some of the deepest respect for people who can participate (let alone complete!) a triathlon. Will I get there? Don’t know. I hope to, the thing is I’m an ok biker, a poor runner and I dare not talk about swimming. And I smoke, and I drink, and I don’t eat all to well, and I haven’t done anything really physical in the last couple of years - read here: more or less 10!
So first thing first: get back into some kind of shape. I’ll keep on biking, but I’ll do it more seriously. I’ll take up running. To eventually be able to complete a marathon – that alone should take some time and effort – and when all that sets in and if I like it, well….might as well start swimming!
So you’ll have random thoughts and stuff that will happen to me along the way. And hopefully you’ll come back every now and then to check it out and have fun reading it. Will I have the discipline to post each and everyday? Will I only have the discipline to even stick to the plan?!
