“..having a fit and healthy lifestyle is not just for myself anymore. It was for my child.”
I was reading articles on how sports can develop positive life skills for your child. I wanted to empathize with my son, Justin, when he starts getting engaged in sports on his own. Whether he gets into an endurance or a contact sport, it would help me to know how to handle the discipline of the trainings the sport would entail. This is how I got into competitive racing in the first place. I want to be able to influence him to have the same attitude towards sports growing up.
Selecting to participate in an aquathlon was the easy part since I enjoy being in the water. When I was younger, about my son’s age (he’s 3 now), my mom used to bring me along whenever she did laps at the pool or to the beach to swim every weekend. I have treasured those fond memories I’ve had with her ’til this day. I want my son, Justin, to remember those kind of experiences with me when he grows up.
