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!
