Nervous, and a look back to the first time…

So many feelings are going on right now. I really can’t share all the excitement/nervousness/fear/love I am feeling, so instead I decided to do an interpretative dance… [Insert dance here] I wish I had enough time to come up with a dance and then do it for you and somehow video tape and and put it up but I do not. So I figured instead I would post up some pictures of what my first race looked like and then we can have some awesome comparisons. In a way this kind of feels like my first race, I don’t know what to expect and I am doing something for the first time. Granted I have done other triathlons but this is the longest distance I will be doing to date! I really don’t think I will ever do an Iron man…..(think is the key word here)

 

The morning of the race

Betty's Debut!

My bike is on the left, look how pretty blue betty looks in the mist.

This is my girl Christina, she was such a savage new mama doing a triathlon I miss the hell out of you Christina!( Now that I look back, even though I weighed less my face is thinner now than it was then…hmmm. something to consider when being bummed about gaining weight.)

Hair braiding before the race!

My mom came to my first triathlon, It was so great having my family down in Monterey,CA cheering me on for my race!

 

Getting ready to Jump in the water!

Bike Bike Bike!!

 

Run!

This was a rough run, as they always are. I have to say that running during a triathlon is always the hardest part, maybe  because you just did two other sports? ya think?

Then things got a little crazy at the after party…..Lets just say Tri peeps know how to party!

 

That is a little photo recap of my first ever Triathlon. Looking back at it I remember how amazing it was. I loved all these people and I now know that triathlon training was more than just a race for me it was building a family. Maybe that is why I don’t have the same feeling going into this race as I did the last two. I had my team with me, My friends I made throughout the tough training days. I guess I learned that Triathlon training is meant to be with a team, training my my own was by far way harder than with the team.

In any case are we ready to kick some half Iron Ass or what!
