I COMPLETED MY GOAL

On Saturday August 30th I raced in the Lake St Louis Triathlon. I can't believe it is already over with. It took over 3 months to prepare for the race and yet it only took 1 hour and 40 minutes to be over with. I am so glad that I pushed myself to race in a triathlon, it was so much fun. There was several members of our ward and stake that raced that day. It was nice to have friends from the ward to motivate and push you to the finish line. The race started at 8:35am for our Heat. First we swam 1/4 mile, then we biked a 16.9 mile ride, and finished with a 2.6 mile run home. The weather was perfect and the water temp was in the 70's. The race was very organized and well planned, they provided a nice lunch after and all the water and gaterade you could chug. Thank you Cory for the bike. I couldn't have done the race with out your info and gear you gave me. Thank you to all of those who helped me through this expierence I loved every minute of it. From the butt pain from riding my bike so much, to the back pain from running. Thank goodness for Chiropractors! Thank's Ryan! It all pays off in the end when you have your family and friends cheering for you as you cross the finish line. I hope to keep setting new goals and challenge my self in future triathlons and races. All of you who have thought of doing something like this JUST DO IT! It was so worth it. I ended up taking 9 place in my age division. That sounds really good but there was only 11 in my division HA. I took 196 out of 255 short course participants. Give me credit though it was my first race. I hope to beat my time next year. Thank you again for everyone's help to motivate me. It worked!

About Me

Just a little web site to keep our family and friends informed. Out in our new Hometown of O'Fallon, Missouri. We just all keep growing up and getting older. I am a mother of 4 fun loving active children. They sure keep me busy and I love every minute of it. We all have adjusted well out here in Missouri. Thank goodness we haven't seen any tornadoes though. Jason is very busy with Chiropractic school so I have been put in charge of the blog. I think he did that on purpose to teach me how to use the computer. Our family is so very blessed we love just to be with each other and having a little fun. Now we just try to get Dad to talk about other things besides Gross Anatomy and how our body works. But we love him all the same. We think of all of you often and miss you all(now i talk like a missourian).
