Winding Trails Womans Triathlon Sept 12, 2010

At 5:00 AM We loaded up in the Jeep and headed out to Farmington. Chris and Mom came for support and to ensure media coverage 🙂

Thank you to Both of you , as well as Matt I for the support!

———————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Unloaded the car and took stock of the event to come and ensured I had everything I needed.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Starting to feel the nerves as I wait on the beach for the start. Getting Ready to Swim (55 outside, 68 in the water)

———————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Finally its time for my wave to line up. My wave is first timers and the Athena Division (over 150 lbs)

———————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Off I go to a nice quick start…..all those arms and legs flailing is hazardous.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————-

I was so happy to be done with the swim, but now I was cold and wet….something that would last till the end.

Transition One : From Swim to Bike. Pulled on bike shorts, socks , shoes , and helmet

———————————————————————————————————————————————————-

And I’m off on the bike

———————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The bike ride was by far the easiest leg of the Tri, I felt like it was over before it started.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Transition Two : Bike to Run

Swapped shoes and pulled off the helmet, and into the woods I went!

———————————————————————————————————————————————————-

I Made It!! And I cried!

———————————————————————————————————————————————————-

I really made it!

———————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Mom was right there waiting for me and Chris was in capturing it all for posterity.
