I never thought I'd be writing this post. What I actually mean is I never thought I'd be writing this post describing my success at training for and completing my first triathlon. Sure, a post to the tune of "How Failing to Complete a Triathlon Made Me a Better Person" seemed like a plausible, if not likely, post -- not one describing what it feels like to actually achieve such a feat.
A lot of people will tell you they couldn't even run a mile before they started training. That's simply not true for me. I couldn't even run half a mile without stopping. Really.
