Yesterday I competed in the Tri the Pee Dee Triathlon in Florence, SC. 700 meter open water swim, 15 mile bike, 3.1 mile run. Time: 01:34:54. It was a request to Scott for my birthday (though not until the 24th) . . . that we could all go up there, stay over night, and they would cheer me on as I tried not to die and cross the finish line. :0) It was definitely lots of fun though I am feeling some soreness today. I don't know what it is about doing these triathlons but it feels so good! Maybe I am just enjoying being athletic again like back in the good 'ol high school and college days. But it also takes discipline and hard work in training. It presents a challange and I really like that. In this race I managed to come in 2nd place in my division (I missed 1st by 50 seconds)!!! Finishing alltogether was a massive accomplishment as this was my first real lake swim. But to be able to be competitive in my division and even in overall women is GREAT! Here are a few pics. Scott was doing well following me in the swim until Easton distracted him. So we ended up with 8 pictures of some other lady swimming. :0) I'm in the middle in the black suit.
