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!

Good Job! I want to do another tri so bad. Let me know when the next one is down there and I'll come do it with you. I'm not sure if I'm ready for a sprint yet?

Wow Kerry that is so awesome! I didn't know that you liked to do that! More power to ya..I know I would sink in the pool. I wouldn't even be able to go a couple feet! You are wonder women! An inspiration for me that's for sure!
