#1 has made the announcement that after 5 years, thousands of dollars, and an incredible amount of time and dedication, she is tired of Irish dancing for now. She may come back to it later, but for now she wants to cut back to one day a week in order to try new things.
Of course she has a new thing already in mind. Why am I not surprised? She wants to try triathlons. Thank you, Imelda. I wonder where she could have gotten that idea....
She is hard working and very determined, so I have no doubt that she will be able to do this. My problem with it is that I have to take her to the gym to train every morning. Which means, of course, that I am now training for a triathlon, too.
It's not that I never thought of running one. I've watched the Iron Man on TV and never thought they were crazy. In fact I thought it was cool. There's a big difference between "wow, that's kind of cool" and "I think I should try it."
This morning was 7 miles biking and 1/2 mile swim. We have a long way to go. I remember complaining about all of those dance classes. I only wish it were that easy now.
