If you’ve ever had the desire to participate in a triathlon or perhaps even COMPETE in a triathlon, you might be missing a few screws. Just sayin’ . I’m not slandering you or anything, because my Hubby falls in that category. It’s an observation. My observation. Just in case you ARE a triathlon person you don’t need to get your athletic panties in a wad…
Today marked Hubby’s return to triathlon competing. yay him. It’s all good though. I’m proud of him. I can’t run anymore, but even when I did…..NO. DESIRE. Mostly because I’m pretty certain I’d panic in the swim and drown. Not my strong suit. Plus, I’d be all concerned about what is swimming under and around me…visions of Jaws are seared in my brain. Oh and biking…eh. I hate that my rear is so sore….and yes, I know it goes away (I did actually teach spin classes for several years), but I only like to bike easy on the beach, like this on Saturday:
However, today we got the kids up bright and early…5:30 a.m. on a Sunday. Good times…..fortunately, they have one more week of sleeping in to recover! The bonus was the beautiful sunrise at the start of the race.
And then the race began. Men first (in yellow caps)….followed by the ladies (in green caps). The race was:
800 yd. ocean swim/15 mile road bike/4 mile beach run
We haven’t got the final results yet but Hubby did very well, placing roughly 7th in his age group and 40-something out of about 150ish people. Awesome effort. Rewarded by Dunkin Donuts at home! Can I get a WOOP WOOP?!?!!! Enjoy and hopefully you’ll get a nap today like I plan on doing!
Happy Sunday, ya’ll!
