This iReport is part of an assignment:
CNN Fit Nation: 2013 Triathlon Challenge
Hi I’m Valerie Robinson and I would love to be iReporter for CNN. I just ran the Chicago Marathon in October of this year which was very exciting. I would love to do a triathalon to overcome my fear of swimming in the ocean and drowning. I watched the Ironman championship on tv a few weeks ago and I’ve picked up a few books on training already. I would love to do that one day….Call me crazy but I remember when I was little kid and I saw the Ironman race on tv and I said to myself I want to do that one. My 40th birthday is next year and I want to go into this next decade of my life healthier and happier than ever before and I want to be swim in the ocean without the fear of drowning.
