Summer Games Triathlon

I have always thought it would be so cool if I did a triathlon or ran a marathon, call me crazy. My neighbor apparently had the same thought. Two crazy minds think alike!!! So we decided to do the Summer Games Tri. We had four weeks to train!!! To bad I don't have any pictures of us killing ourselves training, but I do have some really good ones of the tri at Sand Hollow.

This was two weeks before the tri, we went to Sand Hollow to practice an "open water" swim. It made me kind of nervous for the real thing because the water was cold and took my breath away. I thought I was going to sink to the bottom.

The Swim


The Swim is done, now to the bike...


Getting ready to bike

...And we are off.


Time to Run...

Finish line here I come!!!
Done at last!!!




The best cheer squad in the world!!!




My goal was to finish the tri in 2 hours and I did it in 1 hour and 48 minutes. It was so fun. The atmosphere got us pumped up and the fact that we both accomplished a goal that we never thought we would or could was awesome. I had so much fun that I registered for the Scofield Tri in the middle of July and I am going to attempt a half marathon in August. Crazy, I know!!!
