I was hooked on the sport of triathlon after being the run leg in an Olympic distance race in San Jose in the early 90's.  I was the run leg for a good reason - I didn't know how to swim. 

The decision to learn to swim was big  because I was always fearful of water.  That decision also meant I would fully embrace the sport of swimming.  I accepted other swimmers talking yards, not laps.  I grew to like circle-swimming, understanding that swimming with faster swimmers in my lane was going to make me faster.  I slowly embraced non-freestyle strokes as being good for my freestyle, as well as overall fitness. 

All of this meant I had changed my mindset from thinking the swim portion of a triathlon was something to get through so I could ride and run, to a wonderful sport that not only provided me a welcome relief from tired legs but something I can participate in until I have one foot in the grave.

So, triathletes:  why don't you embrace swimming?

Triathlon is a competition involving swimming, running and cycling. This type of competition is open to all who wants to join. The only requirement is that you should be fit to compete. The competition is not liable for any medical concerns while you are in the competition. The training process is hard and it really takes a lot of effort. A contender should keep track on his/her diet, he/she also needs a lot of time allotted for training. The process of training and competing is not easy, but whenever you've reached the finish line all is worth it.

Pool fences have become a requirement in some localities but for places where there are no regulations regarding the installation of pool fences it will be advisable to build one as a safety precaution. Pool owners should be responsible enough to think of the safety of others especially the children who have greater chance of roaming in the pool area without the supervision of adults which usually results in falling and eventually drowning.

    I have spent the last 30 years helping individuals to their goals, whether it be crossing a finish line with a PR, eating better or, simply finding the 20 minutes daily they desire to exercise.
