Since I don’t hunt, I spent my allotted deer camp time editing video. Here’s a recap of Doughboy Year One. I wanted to keep it short, and down the road I may edit a more meaningful video that includes the ups and downs, the emotions, the struggles, and more family stuff. For now, I just wanted to mark the one year anniversary with a celebration of accomplishments.
You will notice there is not a drastic change in my weight over this year. But I think it’s important to get out there and get moving no matter your size. Year two is going to be very intensive in training, so changes are still on the horizon.
The first link is high resolution. The second is for dial-up or slower computers. (As a slow triathlete, I sympathize.) I want to thank my wonderful family, especially Meghan Jack and Olivia; my friends, especially Chris Sands, Anna Powlus, Elaine Lake, and Jason Lake who helped with photo and video; the volunteers at races who stay to the end, especially course sweepers from Mid-Penn Trailblazers; and the great community of support at Beginner Triathlete, especially Dmbfan4life20 and Tor Christensen who loaned me socks in Annapolis. And a special shout out to Jen Levan Hipps. I think you were the first person to mention the word “triathlon” to me. So this is entirely your fault.
