After being 40 pounds heavier last year, I vowed I would never get there again! I was so excited to be able to participate in triathlons again this year! They get me motivated to work hard and stay in shape! They're also fun to participate in with my sister! The water in the reservoir was so low this year that it was muddy (mmm, yummy). But we survived! It was a fun tri! I pushed hard with all I had and did pretty good (compared to my times in years past). I got 4th in my age group (of 26) and 18th overall (of 95).
