Last Sunday all of my training and hard work paid off! I completed my FIRST (unless you count the kid’s one I did when I was 8 years old) TRIATHLON! And it was a BLAST! Unfortunately, in a month where we have had mid-90’s weather already, the race fell on a cold and rainy 55 degree day. Meh. So besides being dreadfully cold from before I even started, the race was awesome. And I figure any race will feel better than this one, so it can only go up! I felt strongest on the swim, weakest on the bike, and I made it through the run so I’m going to call that good. It was such a great feeling to accomplish a big race, and I can’t wait to do another one! My super-tri-girl friend Amanda came and did the race with me and WON our age group! You GO Girl! I came in 4th with a 1:16 finish. I’m on a free-fall workout plan for the next 2 weeks with vacations on the horizon, but I’ll be back in TRI mode again before the end of the summer! Here are some pictures of the big day!
