I think my blog has had one of it's biggest quiet periods ever. For good reason. My family has been in the midst of a major change. A move between provinces. From town to country. To an acreage in paradise. I've been busy.
And a bit at a time, I've explored my new surroundings on my wheels and in my running shoes.

Since arriving, I've planted part of my huge garden, and watched my fruit trees blossom. I've joined a local triathlon group. It's largely a beginner group, and there's so much excitement in seeing soon-to-be new triathletes work towards their first race. At the same time, there's also some seasoned triathletes in the group who have already given me excellent feedback on training routes and I am hopeful may become new training partners.
I have done two races. A 10K race where I came DFL (dead f-ing last). More on that in a future post, but let me just say that there is honour in being the last person across a finish line. Yesterday, I did an 18km race through wineries.
Today marks the 4 year mark from the first day I went for a run. Four years since I stopped saying "I can't". For the last 4 years, I've been confronting my fears and inhibitions. The journey has been amazing and it's far from over.
I didn't feel like blogging till now. I just felt like living and experiencing. Now, I am ready to add reflecting and writing to my list. So, I think I can safely say that DebTris is getting a revival.
