|Before the race|
|We both took 3rd place in our age groups!|
|Bike to run transition|
|Happy to be done!|
It was so much fun and I loved accomplishing this with my sister at my side!
The second, I did in 2012 sans the sister cuz she went and got herself knocked up. (Which by the way, my nephew will be here in six days!)
The challenge for this one was training alone and competing alone. But come race day I had amazing cheerleaders (Mom, sister, friend Danielle & boyfriend Sean) that kept me going and made me feel like I wasn't alone.
|The last 1/4 mile was on the beach! |
Tough - but I could see the finish line so also motivating!
This triathlon was definitely more mentally and physically challenging but the Lake Michigan scenery helped to distract me!
|I'm the second one out - isn't that a gorgeous setting!??|
|Celebrating with a Long Island. Obvs.|
