One of my brothers texted to let us know he was going to do this Tri… so my sister and I quickly signed up too! I love doing races especially with family and friends!
I get super excited that this race is an open water swim (even if it is only 400 meters)! The fact that it is open water seems exciting, even though I had a hard time getting into a good rhythm. My swim was over in 6:21 (too short!) 🙂
Then the bike was VERY hilly! I feel that I need to use my brakes on the downhills more then most racers do 😉 but the 7 miles went by really fast! My bike time was 29:52.
Before I knew it… I was running my bike back to the transition area!
I took a Huma gel and a quick drink (while running) to give me some energy for the 3.2 mile run!
I felt (mostly) great on the run! My run time was 23:47.
My total time was 1:02:27. This was almost my exact same time as last year!
It actually felt like we were racing together because my sister and I were in the 2nd heat and my brother was in the 4th heat. He caught me and passed me halfway through the run!
They both got 2nd place overall and I got first in my age group!
I’m thankful for these goofballs too! They were able to cheer me on, take lots of pictures, AND fight with sticks! 🙂
Then we spent the rest of the afternoon swimming and playing! It was a great day!
