The Women of Steel Triathlon

So I actually made it through my first Triathlon! I couldn't believe it! I was exhausted and I really am a crappy swimmer, but hey I made it. I did it with my sis-in-laws: Janel and Cassie. They were amazing too! We all loved getting out and staying fit. There was so much excitement because it's an all women's triathlon and so there were over 700 competitors. The atmosphere was fun and there were tons of people to help cheer you on! When I was riding my bike, there was this little boy on the very back road where no one was cheering, and he would ring his little cow-bell and yell "keep up the good work ladies!". Cute things like that kept me going strong. I ended with a good time- 1:14.04! I just wanted to finish in under 1:20. I was suprised to find that I actually took first place in my age division and in the athena category! It was so much fun! Thanks Derric for getting us in! I was a little bummed cause my hubby couldn't be there to cheer me on, but he definitely helped with all the training! Thanks babe! So here are all my race pics in the smilebox! Enjoy!

Well everybody...I did it! I completed my first tri and it was a blast. The swim was crappy but everything else went well. I finished in 1:14.04 and ended up winning my division! I got to stand on a podium and everything! I will be posting pics very soon!


Well I thought about copying and pasting the photos that my friends have already posted on their blogs about mine and Drew's graduation, but then I would be the lazy one. Thanks to all who helped make graduation awesome! Drew and I are so lucky to have such good friends! Kellie and Rachel totally cooked for our families and hosted a wonderful after graduation party! Thanks you guys! That was awesome! And a special thanks to all the family who drove down to support us- moms and dads, Derric and Cassie! You guys really helped to make our day special! Thanks!

Watch out Texas!

So I guess it's time for another lonesome summer. Drew is leaving for Dallas, Texas today! I am so sad but am excited for him. Another hot and sweaty summer of selling pest control. Thanks for your hard work babe!


The Icebreaker finally arrived. It was time for all of that training to pay off.
