Ramblin’ Rose Triathlon, Chapel Hill

Catherine Projects

Some of you that have been hangin’ around with me have heard me freaking out for about the past 9 months because I signed up for the Ramblin’ Rose Triathlon.  Triathlon?  Are you kidding me?  I could barely run then.  

But, I swam, I biked, and I ran…and on Sunday, I joined my 2 sister-in-laws for the Tri.   I felt pretty good starting out.  I was in line waiting to get in the pool for the swim, and there was my family huddled at the window outside the pool waving like crazy at me.  I have the best husband around.  It was cold.  It was early.  And it was his birthday!  My girls even made a sign to cheer me on. 

The swim went well, the bike was a bit hard and the run was a challenge…I was pretty tired by then.  But I just kept going and I made it! 

When I finished, I had a few tears because…wow…I finished!  I did a triathlon!  I felt pretty good!  And now my 9 year old daughter wants to do it with me next year.  How cool will that be??!!
