Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
At the insistence of some friends and fellow bloggers, I started this blog because I needed a place to start recording my journey (and a place to recap my race day memories or training without annoying all of my friends and family when I am long winded…wink wink). In January of 2017 I set out on one of those big, once in a lifetime, almost impossible athletic goals. However this goal wasn’t just a personal one, but a karmic (pay back the universe kind of one) to raise funds for Leukemia Lymphoma Society. Yet I didn’t know the path would start to change me, so deeply as a person. Endurance Mermaid came from my lifelong love of water and swimming, but when it comes to cycling and running I’m a fish out of water. Now this is my place to record all the good, the bad and the ugly of endurance training. Hope you enjoy and maybe inspire others to begin their own journey.
