My Triathlon

This weekend my friend Jen and I participated in a sprint triathlon which was put on by the Kimball East Stake out here in Az.
So we had to get up pretty early to loaded up as you can tell in the picture above the sun wasn't quite up yet!

The 1st leg of the triathlon was a 400 meter swim which is 16 laps! Now I love to swim and have done a ton of surfing growing up but I have never swam competitively! Advanced swimmers can swim the 400 meters in 6-10 minutes so I was completely surprised and very happy when I finished the 400 meter swim in under 9 minutes!
Advanced swimmer? Why yes I am:)

As soon as we were done with our swim we had to rush over to where our bikes and gear was to get ready for our 8 mile bike ride!

I would just like to give a shout out to my wonderful husband who 100% supports me in all my crazy endeavors! He was there with the boys cheering me on at each one of the events I have done in the past year and helps keep me motivated for the events I'm still preparing for!

I love you Kevin with all my Heart!

Okay check out this picture of all the bikes!

The last leg of the race was a 2 mile run which we both beat our time we were aiming for which was to complete the triathlon in under an hour!

I had a blast doing this and can't wait for my next to events which are coming soon!
I will be doing a 1/2 marathon in January and Ragnar with a bunch of friends which is a 200 mile relay in February!

P.S. for Ragnar we still need 3 team mates if your interested!!!

I would love to do the Ragnar. Hopefully I should be able to do 6 miles by then! I think the trick might be getting someone to watch my baby!
