I took a leap of faith and resigned my position. Friday was my last official day as an employee, so I guess tomorrow is the first day as my own boss. I'll be working as a contractor to my current employer to finish out projects, and I've landed myself another job as a contractor for a few months. I'll be out pounding the pavement to keep the work coming, and if all else fails there is always Walmart.
For a person that likes the comfort of knowing what to expect each day, this is a big step for me. It is not a decision that I took lightly, in fact it has been at least 6 months in the making - probably more. I guess it took months of uncomfortableness and misery to finally make me willing to close my eyes and take that leap.
Where does triathlon fit into all of this? Unfortunately I've lost a lot of ground and gained back a lot of the weight I lost during my first two years of triathlons. So - I start over. The great thing is, my new boss...well she's going to let me set my own schedule.
