Clearly, not impressed after that swim. :lol:

The bike leg was fun…

We finished strong by sprinting down the chute to the finish…


We sprinted so fast we had to come to a screeching halt to avoid running into the people in front of us. :tongue:


Not the photo we were hoping for, but memorable nonetheless.

Gorgeous photos! And I’m so jealous that your hubby did a race with you! :) Anyway, congrats again. You look like you had a strong race.


Stacy (StacyGrowsHealthy) June 10, 2010 at 12:35 pm

Looks like so much fun! There is a tri I am thinking about signing up for. This might push me over the edge.


Becki @ HikeBikeEat June 10, 2010 at 12:44 pm

I’ve been kicked in the face one too many times during a swim to ever consider doing a tri. Major props to you both!


Mary @ Bites and Bliss June 10, 2010 at 12:49 pm

Yay, memories!! :D It took me a while to realize that was you in the first photo running from the water- you look so different in all that gear! The pic of you and Eric running is cool, ya’ll are both air born! haha Congrats again :D


Wei-Wei June 10, 2010 at 12:55 pm

To avoid getting the copyright on the photos – right as soon as they’re enlarging – hit your print screen button SUPER FAST (lol)!

It works. I have one of the boyfriend that I’m posting tomorrow on my blog

Great shots! Congrats again on all your hard work!


Faith @ lovelyascharged June 10, 2010 at 1:08 pm

Haha, how cute are those! You should get at least one framed as a reminder of all your work!


Chrissy (The New Me) June 10, 2010 at 1:19 pm

Awesome photos! I’m doing a tri in August – I hope I look as happy as you do!

Mmmm looks like you beat Eric?!? :) :)


Helen June 10, 2010 at 1:30 pm

Lol I love the one of you on the bike! It looks like you had a great time and you are all smiles as you cross the line even though there was drama during the run leg. Its a shame that you had to slow up for the people in front, how dare they so go slow!


Retta @ RunRettaRun June 10, 2010 at 2:28 pm

That’s so cool that you and your hubby did this together!! Love it!


Karen Wright June 10, 2010 at 3:16 pm

Do you know of this man? He is a vegan bodybuilder!

Great quality or not, those photos are priceless! The swimming part seems so clustered and I’m afraid I’d freak out! Maybe one day…:)


Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin June 10, 2010 at 7:46 pm

I love how you have a giant smile on your face in the pics. You can tell you’re in your element! :)


Kellie June 10, 2010 at 8:40 pm

My 1/2 marathon finish photo shows my arm and you can see my hat. I was so sad. At least you can see your faces and it is a fun memory!


[email protected] gracefulfitness.wordpress.com June 10, 2010 at 11:55 pm

I had a similar experience after I ran my first marathon last year. My husband and I ran it together and later that day he started talking about his next marathon. He asked me if I was going to do another and I just gave him that look that said “there is no way I am talking about this right now”. The experience was so surreal that it took about a month for it to sink in and then I started thinking about the possibility of another marathon in my future. No dates yet but it could happen! Congrats on going for it right away!


Lisa (leeses peeces) June 11, 2010 at 12:26 am

Congrats! I actually just completed my first triathlon last weekend too, and now I can’t stop scanning websites for more in the area.

The open water really is a killer. (Check out my race recap!) I had a bit of a panic attack too, but aren’t we glad we finished it? Definitely a rewarding experience.

Great job, girl!


Triathlonbabe aka Grace June 11, 2010 at 6:59 am

Ahhhhh, what great and memorable photos for a job well done! I am also jealous that your hubby did a triathlon with you. Me and my hubby have done a duathlon together but unfortunately it was done in a relay fashion instead of actually together….ergh!

Way to go!


Emily June 11, 2010 at 7:03 am

Thanks for the inspiration, Ange! It is so true that fear holds us back; knowing how far youve come in challenging yours makes me want to go further to challenge mine :)


Janet June 11, 2010 at 8:50 am

Ang you have no idea how much I enjoy reading your Try a Tri journey, it’s so inspiring! I want sign up for one soon :)
