The Triathlon...

I did my 4th triathlon this weekend...yes, my name is Samye and I am a triaholic. It is a TOTAL bummer that they are so darn expensive because I really would do so many more of these.

It was a wonderful tri- I had two really good friends do it with me (it was their first) and they are still my friends...so I figure they had a wonderful time too!

Here is my cheer team-they were the best cheerleaders ever! Sweet Bennett never could find me- the first time he saw me was at the finish line. Every time I would ride by him he just had this lost distant look in his face.
And this sweet man, he was the best cheerleader- finding me all along the course and cheering me on!!

These are the girls that did it with me- it was so much fun having people to train with and then to go to the big race day with. These two girls are amazing and it was such a treat! And yes, I do realize how gorgeous we look...but hey after what we went through I am surprised we look this good!

I placed 4th overall for my age division and improved on my swim and bike time by a good amount. The run was kind of rough since I developed a stress fracture at THE BEGINNING of the swim. So running a 5K on a stress fracture....definitely don't recommend that! Hopefully we can find another one to do soon...anyone else want to join us...we have a LOT of fun!

You girls are my heroes. I would do one with you if:
a) I had a bike
b) I didn't have to run

You all look amazing. I wish I looked that great on a regular day. Maybe I should exercise more. I haven't been in an exercise routine since Bloomington. Sad I know.
