Leap In by Alexandra Heminsley in the story about a woman, some waves, and the will to swim. She believes that a life fully lived has nothing to do with how much money you have or spend, but one full of experiences. And something she really wanted to do was swim. The way Running Like a Girl was all about her journey to loving running, Leap In is about falling in love with swimming, and I couldn’t wait to read it.
I don’t think any title for any of my posts has ever been as apt. The Windsor Triathlon over the weekend IS this title – the smell of wetsuits and falling into hedges. If you follow this blog you know this was something I was very apprehensive about – I wasn’t doing the full triathlon but the Sprint Relay with Sister and Friend but only having the cycling leg to take on didn’t make this any less daunting. I wasn’t a cyclist, didn’t own a bike, and my legs might as well have been made out of jelly. But we all signed up anyway and I got to training. Like with all things at first time moved really slowly then it came all at once.
