My First Triathlon Race Report - CB&I Sprint

Swim - 500 Meters
Bike - 15  Miles 


Run - 5k
Swim, Bike, Run! I got it DONE!!! I could not of dreamed of a more perfect race day! I was most worried about biking since I am still so anxious and cautious on the bike. But the swim turned out to be the biggest challenge. Out in the water, with all the people turns more into survival than swimming! But I made it out of the water slowly but surely. And ontoe the bike! It was a strong ride for me! It was my fastest ride yet! I was still slower than most, but every person who passed me I called out in my head I'll get you on the run! And I did! I was flying past people on the run! And when I crossed that finish line I burst into sobs!! I cannot believe after all I had gone thru I was able to accomplish so much! I finished in 1:37!! A very respectable time! Top 25% of my age group! Not bad for a newbie! It turns out I'm pretty good at this! I have lots of room to grow and improve, but I know I can accomplish great things!

How lucky am I to have so many people come out to cheer me on?




I am so grateful for all the support and all the sacrifices my husband, my kids, and my parents make for me to be able to accomplish so much! I could not have done it without them!
