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??!!
