I'm A Triathlete ! Again....
Today was the Danskin Triathlon. Last year was my first time doing it and again this year I was a gluten for punishment. I even shaved off 18 minutes from last years results. Yeah! I am absolutely afraid of the open water swim. I can swim but I am not a swimmer. We had to swim 603 meters. I am always so relieved when that part is done. Then on to the 20k Bike and 5k Run/Walk. Today the weather was so bad. Normal Seattle weather except this is August and we usually have wonderful weather. It down poured the whole time. The weather man said showers, not rain!
Here we are after receiving our metals all soaked and still smiling. Myself and my DBF's two sister's Michelle and MerriAnn. Could we be smiling cause it's over.....hmmm...
It is a wonderful experience. Any women that has participated will attest to that. Nothing but women bonding and participating for a great cause.
Until next year. *sigh*
