Transition: From Short Course and Half-Ironman to.... Ironman

The cats out of the bag. That's the saying, and our cats take it quite literally I'll admit.
But here I'm referring to the fact that I, Nina Jack, have officially signed, sealed and committed to training, fundraising and racing an Ironman distance triathlon. A race that I have previously deemed "silly", "crazy", "stupid" and "ludicrous". A race that over the past several years I have watched my husband and many friends train for and cross finish line. And slowly, in a sneaky, unsettling way, this event that had actually no appeal to me whatsoever, became something I had to do.

I chose Ironman Texas in 2013 for a variety of reasons, and for more on those reasons, I'll direct you to My Team Diabetes Website , because yes, I hope you'll decide to make a contribution to my silly, crazy, stupid and ludicrous Ironman adventure to raise money for the American Diabetes Association. Trust me, its easier than training and racing and its for an incredible cause.

Transition: Back to Blogging!

Hello World! Its a new year and hopefully returning to blogging is not a resolution that I will falter on. Why start again? Well, in the interest of keeping NY Resolution #2 - "Keep Blog Posts Short", I'm just going to say that you have to sign up, stay tuned, and read on...and hopefully along the way we'll both learn something, or at the very least be somewhat amused by photos of my cats.
Thanks and Happy 2013!

 Stewie promised to help me write my blog.
