First Sprint Triathlon

My polevault friend Tracy talked Me into doing a triathlon with her, and I in turn talked Brynn into doing it with us. I could not have done it without Brynn training with me. It was really nice to have a training buddy, and who better than my best friend, (other than Doug of course, I had already tried to talk him into doing it.) The triathlon was up at the University of Utah it was to help raise money for the 4th street clinic, a clinic for homeless people. The Med school help put on the triathlon and Traci is a 2nd year med student. The triathlon consisted of 300m. swim, 8 mile bike, and 5K run (3.1miles). The mountain biking was very difficult, I thought, but it was great to complete it and to say that I have done a triathlon. We are planning on doing the Pleasant Grove one in June.

This is me running out from just swimming.

Tracy and I are getting our clothes on for the bike ride.

Our wonderful husbands came up to support us.

Making it to the finish line.

Tracy is awesome, she came in way ahead of me. She did this last year, so we will say that is why. Hehe

Brynn finishing her run.

Thank You Brynn for doing this with me. We did it!

Battle wounds from my bike.
