Happy Wednesday All.
As I have been preparing to start my triathlon training, I have been tri-ing really hard not to get caught up and lost in all the fancy smancy triathlon hype. It is sooooo easy to get lost in it..let me tell you!
I took advice from a few people to joined a few triathlon focused FB groups….
ok for most reasons it has been a GREAT idea but for others, like getting lost in the hype…not so much!
If you don’t know, there are people who are able to and do spend large amounts of money on being a triathlete. We are talking the cost of small cars, mortgages, college tuition and I wish I was exaggerating!! Not being one of those people, I have had such sticker shock when I see the cost of races, gear, bikes, etc. that people spend on being a triathlete. The sticker shock
was is REAL!!!
I have been tri-ing really hard not to get lost and caught up in the hype. I have not lost my scruples and will not lose them to be successful as a triathlete. My frugal, penny pincher self is not going to lose track of my financial fitness goals for this sport…..NO MA’AM!!
I will be a triathlete on a budget!
So far I have the basics of what I need to get started with my training and have yet too lose too many Benjamins ($$) in the process. I will continue to buy items on sale and not lose any pride taking hand me downs and borrowing from friends as well. So far, I have borrowed a bike and been given a wet suit….please and thank you!!
Standing my ground and not getting lost in the hype!!
Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow and join us for the Thursday Throwdown Link-Up! We are still talking about summer with tomorrow focused on Favorite Summer Activities (outdoors and/or indoors). I hope you will join us!
I would love to stay connected:
