more firsts

today is a day of more firsts for me:

1. the first time I posted my blog onto facebook
2. the first donation to my charities - making me feel all warm and fuzzy, and making it all more real
3. the first decision about events

I signed up to the PDO biathlon on 3rd May. 600m swim and 4.5km run. this is the last one of the season before it gets insanely hot out here! I'm using it as a warm up for the Fahal island swim later in the month. Fahal is going to be my first fundraising event I've decided, as long as I can get a kayaker as my sea support. the swim is around 4km and we need someone on a kayak to escort us in case we have to be rescued. I am optimistic I won't need rescued, but the organisers won't take my word for it :D

I am also a little closer to booking my first training with Clipper. I don't think I'll really settle until this is done and I have passed it. 

until then, I need to train and stretch, work, plan, work, train and stretch, work, plan, train and stretch.

I think it's going to be a good 16 months :)
