I did it!

Yes. I am a triathlete! I finished the triathlon in 2 hours, 7 minutes and 39 seconds! My goal was two and a half hours, so I went way under! Swimming was my least favorite and biking was, oddly, my most favorite.
I did the swim in 10 minutes and 12 seconds. The bike in 1 hour and 26 minutes (which was WAY good for me!). Finally, I did the run in 32 minutes(ish). I walked a lot more than I wanted and got off to a bad start in the swim, but I smiled the whole time and stayed on my bike the whole time!!! When the hills got hard, I would starting praying for people and of course, sing "Go tell it on the Mountain"! (Kent, kindly, played that song for me on the way there!)

Patrick, Kent, Carol and my Mom were there to cheer me on! It was so nice to have their support - loud and clear! So, with my first triathlon behind me, I say this - bring on the next one! This girl can't stop with one! They are addicting!

Here are some highlight pictures from my triathlon!

You did it, you did it! Well, I knew you would, you determined little thing, you. I prayed for you around 8:30 and wondered what you were doing at that moment. I think I was wiping crumbs off a table or something...

Hooo-Ahh for you!
