We did it!

Rusty, Uncle Howie and I did the Wilson Wet N Wild Triathlon this past weekend, and we all completed it! 600M swim, 20 mile bike ride, and a 5k run.

After the race. (Not gonna lie, I was a little dizzy in this photo)

It was really fun, glad we did it! My time was 2 hours and 8 minutes, not the fastest in the race but since my goal was just to finish I was happy with it!

3 things got me through the bike ride:

1. This song:

2. Hearing parts of this kid's speech in my head:

3. A kind of overweight woman passing me on the ride and saying "Keep it up, less than 2 miles left!" This was helpful because I had NO IDEA how much was left or how far I had gone and I was kind of losing it. Thanks, lady!

Also big thanks to all the people who came to watch and support us - we have the BEST family and friends in the whole wide world :)

Triathlons are fun... maybe I'll do one again some time...
