Ramblin’ Rose Triathlon and Animal Stories Founder’s Circle Swap

Catherine Projects

What a way to begin a perfect fall morning…with a 250 swim, a 9 mile bike ride and a 2 mile run!  Here are my 2 Sister-in-laws and myself after completing the Ramblin' Rose Triathlon

I was very excited to improve my time from last year from 1 hour 12 mins. to 1 hour 1 minute!  And that was even with my bike chain falling off at one point!   It was a great race with over 600 women from 9 years old to 70.  If you live in the Raleigh-Durham Chapel Hill area, I encourage you to try it next year.  It's women only, everyone is so supportive and encouraging, and when you're done, you feel like a million bucks!  And they just announced there is going to be an additional race in May in Raleigh at the AE Finley YMCA.  I'm excited about that one because it's super close to home.



I've been asked to share my Founder's Circle Swap.  I HAD to make 125 of these puppies.  And if you know me, mass stamping is not my cup of tea…but I even had the woman next to me on the plane on the way to Utah, helping me assemble these.

Honestly, I didn't like this stamp set, Animal Stories, until I saw Wendy Randall had stamped them this way.  Once I saw that, I was sold!
