Tri #9

Swim - I have to say they kept the pool a little warm to compete in, since it felt like my bath water. It slowed me down a little but I still swam it in 8 minutes.

Bike - The temp. was cold (41) especially when your wet but I braved it out and biked my 10 miles in 32 minutes.

Run - This is my worst event and after my legs warmed up after being frozen from my biking I managed to run the 5k portion in 28 minutes.

Finish - Joe and K were my only takers on supporting me this time, I think it was due to the cold temps at 7:45 am. They cheered my on and kept me going. I love my cheerleaders!!

Good Friends - Shannon on the right is my faithful workout partner. She keeps me going at 6 am every morning. She did great in the Beginning Tri. She took 4th. Shaunna on the left has been my tri partner for the last couple of years. I am glad to have her back now that the marathon is over. She took 9th and didn't even train, well besides running a marathon in Oct. I took 4th finishing in 1 hr. 18 min. and was happy about that. I could have done better so next time which won't be until April. Triathlons are the best!

TAG, your it!

I have been tagged by Malea. Here are the rules: you need to type 7 things about yourself that you don't think anyone knows and then choose 7 people to tag at the end and leave their link.
1. I am truly an ice cream lover. I could eat it all day long so that is why I choose not to buy it or I really would be 200 lbs.
2. The wind really bothers me. It always makes me feel creepy.
3. I admit that I am an exercise junkie. Although, if someone weren't paying me and I didn't have a faithful exercise partner then I most likely would only get to the gym 3 days a week.
4. I like to do triathlons and recently 5k's and I don't really care about winning but when you do it feels really good!!
5. I would really like to go to hair school but the timing will probably never be right.
6. I have turned into a preparedness freak. If you have any questions please ask.
7. I can't spell worth a darn (sorry Malea) but I try to sound and look smart for my kids.
I tag: (I don't know 7 people so here is 5)

New Hair

Ok, for those of you that now me well I am always doing something different with my hair or the color at least so this time I went the shortest I have ever been. Scary but I think I like it. I don't really want to put a picture of just me on the blog so you will have to visualize what it looks like. I dyed back to the dark redish brown and then have it cut in a A-line. They actually had to use the buzzers on the back of my neck, weird! Joe says he likes it but he is my husband and said that he likes me so it really doesn't matter what it looks like. Mom likes it so that is a bonus cause she wasn't sure at first the last time I dyed my hair dark and my kids think it is cool, so I'm good with it. S wants her hair like mine now. It is pretty fun when your daughter wants to start looking the way you do. I guess that means I still look pretty cool to her, in her eyes. Any way I will post our new family pics in larger form soon so you can see them a little better. Love you all!
