Triple Threat Triathlon

So just days {2} after my hubs returned home
it was my big Triathlon race day!

Though I had trained and trained for this day for the last 4 months...
my head was so clouded with the return of my soldier,
I had a big lack of excitement for the race day...

But with me being committed to finishing what I had trained for,
And my girlfriends in tow, I was ready for some early morning FUN!

Yes, FUN.
Freezing cold morning.
Freezing cold breezy Washington weather...

1/2 mile swim, 15 mile bike, and 3 mile run...
ready, set...wait is this a polar bear jump or a swim??

So thankfully the water WAS warmer than the air!
The swim went well,
the bike ride was peaceful {quiet time to myself to ride and think}
and the run was...well i finished it! but the run is not my fav at all!

My time--1 hour 54 minutes.
this includes the entire race, plus my transition times.
It could have been better...a lot better...but I did it!
and its over with!
Maybe another one next summer?!!
