I DID IT!



It feels so good to do something you keep talking about and saying, "oh, yah, i'm totally going to do that someday." I finally did my first Triathlon and I say first because I loved it and can't wait to learn to swim so I can do another one. I really enjoyed the race and I did alright for my first time, and for sucking at the swim. I have to tell you, the swim nearly killed me...I came in 41st out of 52 in my age division after the swim. I was 4th in the bike and somewhere in the 20s for the run, needless to say I was 17th out of 52 overall. Not too bad for minimal training and a flabby mid-section. I hope this small step for mankind can help me be more go-getter about other things in my life. I have so many "somedays", now its time to make them into TODAYS!

You seriously ROCK hardcore. I am so envious of all you still do! Congratulations on your triathalon, what an accomplishment!!

I'm so impressed. It is one thing to say you're going to do a triathalon. It is another to actually do it. I can't wait to hear about your next triathalon.

I am all about templates as well. I can't seem to figure out how to do custom layouts. I think we should try to carpool one week.

Good for you Rae! I tackled my first triathlon just before Nate (Conger)proposed to me. In fact, I think it's the reason WHY he proposed. I'm sure he thought I was a mighty woman!
