Am I crazy?

So I've decided to participate in a sprint triathlon. I'm just bored with the normal workouts and jogging and stuff. I already take spinning classes and jog outside a couple days a week. I just have to add in the dreaded swimming. I mean I HATE swimming. Not only do I NOT want to put on one of those ugly speedos, swim cap and goggles, but swimming has always been SO difficult for me! So I figure it's time to get over it. The big day is July 31, 2010 at 7:00AM at Herb Parsons like outside of Memphis. I'm so excited!! I hope to find the time to actually blog about the experience, but my new job is keeping me pretty busy and worn out. I LOVE IT! I'm a nurse in the cardiovascular/neuro ICU at a local hospital. I have SO much to learn. But the busy schedule is helping me eat better, and forcing me to schedule in my workouts. My weight loss isn't near as quick as the week I detoxed, but it's much more doable. Easier to stick to long term. I'll just keep plugging away!

Oh, and any advice on tri gear would be awesome! I'm totally clueless.
