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!

You are amazing! I totally haven't found the part of me that would ever follow through with such a mentally/physically hard thing to accomplish. I hope to find it soon so I can get these extra 75lbs off my butt. Your awesome!

Wow. I'm impressed. I have been exercising and still view a triathalon as something to be avoided like a plague. Good job! Isn't the human body amazing? And your will power, too!
