Most of the time, when there's something I want to accomplish, it's only me that gets in my way. My negative thoughts, my arguments with myself, etc. This time, it's life getting in my way.
I will not be able to do the Tri Girl Sprint Triathlon.
Between my iPhone falling into the water, our lawmower dying, and numerous other factors, I cannot sign up for the tri. I am ready. At least I think I am; the open water is the only real issue. It still scares me, and it is still a fear I will face. Just not in two weeks.
There are other triathlons, and I'll keep searching for one. But races are expensive, and if I can only afford to do one race before the year is up, it is going to be the Warrior Dash.
I am not giving up. I've trained too hard to give up on it. It's only postponed. I am not happy about it, but it is what it is; and I have to keep moving forward.
