2007 Reflections - My First Triathlon


My completed my first triathlon in 2007 in Webster, MA in July. It was a Danskin sponsored event for women only. I traveled up there with four of the coolest women I know, three pictured here with me. I am the only brunette and they didn't tell me about the black running bra with black shorts uniform either. This is a before photo, we are all VERY nervous, but we look pretty cool, I must say.
This year I want to complete an Olympic distance triathlon, but I better get my ass into some water soon. I have not been swimming since October and I am not a very good competitive swimmer. I can swim to save my life, but I want to beat some asses out there, so I better start!!!
The tri was a huge event for me this summer. Triathlons are soooooooooo much fun. I was definitely bit by the triathlon bug. My only regret is that I live in a region where the season is so short.

Ha! Abandon your children and bring your skinny triathlon butt down here to the South!! We've got plenty of room for as many tris as you want :-)

Humph. How come you get addicted to triathlons, and I get addicted to...laying on the couch? Not fair! I want to be like you when I grow up. :)

Can you send me your address again? I'm sorry, but my email is a disaster, and I want to send you, uh, "something"...
