My hubby and I started a tradition for our wedding anniversary last year. We competed in a triathlon together! We did it again this year! It was a challenge, kind of like marriage and children. Haha We competed in the Spring Sprint Triathlon.
We decided to get a sitter for out four children. This is no easy feat, as they are ages 6, 5, 3 and 1. But we managed to find a sitter who was A) crazy enough to take on the task and B) willing to show up at our house at 430!
This was my second Sprint Distance Triathlon. If you recall a Sprint is 400 yard swim, 12 mile bike and a 5K (this one is a bit shorter with a 10 mile bike and 3 mile run). I finished in under two hours. Not as bad as I thought since I ran the La Jolla half marathon the weekend before, was injured and had only been running…not swimming or biking!
But we finished! Hubby was at the finish (along with some of my running friends) cheering me on!
We had fun. And there was beer.
Now to rest for a minute. 🙂
