I accomplished something I wasn’t sure I would be able to. I’ve completed many triathlons at various distances but I’d never done this in an ocean. On the East Coast of the United States where the ocean is vast and you cannot see land for miles (if at all) I decided it was a great place to try. Standing in front of the water with the waves coming in and no land in sight, Teresa reminded me that the water is a very special place and with the right plan (which she reminded me I had) and right technique (which tri balance has taught me) as well as the right frame of mind anything is possible. She was right in spades. The swim ended up being the best part of my event and despite bike issues probably the biggest accomplishment in my adult athletic endeavours. I couldn’t find enough words to thank Teresa other than to let others know she comes highly recommend from me!
