Triatha-Fun Event

Soo I'm proud to say that Grant did his first triathlon this past Saturday!!
I signed us both up for this Triatha-Fun event hosted by this local tri company the Friday before.

The distances were: 400 meter swim - 13 mile bike - 2.5 mile run

It's a great little starter race where you can work on transition times and just overall fitness.

Minus the 4 times he hurled during the run + the nausea after the race...
My little home skillet didn't really train for it & still survived!
(for the record, 94 degrees is a little too hot for running)

Overall though, he loved it & can't wait for the next one!

Just a few pictures of the event...

Our transition set-up before the race.

Me & the hub before the start.

My cute little friend Dilyana/newbie triathlete decided to join in the Tri-Fun
for her first event too! 

Love this girl. She's such a go-getter!

A last minute picture before we wet-suited it up!

The best part about the race was being able see people that are completely new to triathlons take on the challenge and end up absolutely loving the sport. I'm tellin' ya, it's that feeling of achievement that I talked about in this post that is SO rewarding. It's knowing you tried something new & accomplished a challenging goal that makes it all worth it!

An extra bonus for me was being able to catch up to Grant at the very end of the race
and cross the finishline together.

You can do it too- set a goal & make it happen!
**Great place to look up races/events is Active.com and just do a general search {wink}
