1:33:33 woohoo!

1:33:33 my unofficial time!

Well I am home I did it. Over 1050 people registered not even half showed up because of the horrible weather. If you want to know what it is like to run a triathlon in all seasons ask. I was snowed on, blown on, rained on and yes for the last 10 minutes of the run the sun came out...kind of.

I feel great and strong!!! a year and a half ago I could barely huff and puff up stairs today I swam 500 meters, biked 15 km (with wind blowing and throwing hard hail like snow and rain in my face! BRR the bike was the worst part...never have I worked so hard) finishing with a 5km run. I cried at the finish line...I wish my mom could have seen maybe she did? Sean is my hero standing out in all of it cheering me on. I love you honey. I have some good pictures I will post them soon.

I am off to the tub to warm up my frozen body!

T-Day....Vulcan here I come!

Well to say I am stressed is an understatement. I have an upset tummy because of all those dang butterflies flapping around! Today is the day I have been training for since January. I have worked hard trained 5 days a week yet I still feel lacking. I didn't prepare for rain/snow to run bike and swim in an outdoor pool!!

Yesterday I went and bought new running clothes that were long and warm instead of short and cool. I wish I had more confidence in how I would do I have always had a fear of the unknown. I don't quite know what to expect.

Well wish me luck and send a prayer heavenward at 2:20 that the sky's will break and the sun will come out...or at least it won't rain and wearing a toque running won't slow me down!!!!

Pictures and any horror stories to follow :0)

Showing off!

May and June are such busy months as we all add gardening to our already long list of daily chores. Gardening is my favorite part of spring/summer I just wish I had more time. Why is it that weeds grow 3x faster than anything else?

When we were in Utah we found this awesome planter bike thingy. I have wanted one forever but they are like over $300 here. Well lucky for me we brought the truck and I was able to convince Sean it was a necessity. We found it for half that price Yippee! So here are some of my planters I wanted to show off. I hope they flourish!
