Tomorrow is the first official triathlon of the season!!! My birthday is on Tuesday, and I always try to do a race around my birthday to celebrate cuz I’m a geek like that. Last year was Grandma’s Marathon, and this year it’s the Aurora BayCare Triathon in Green Bay to kick off the triathlon season! I don’t have a race plan or a goal time. The whole point of this tri is to have a blast y’all!
AND…in line with this…do you know what the BEST part is? I get to do it with some of the coolest kids around, which make is *so* much more fun!!
Shannon, lifeguard extraordinaire, is doing her first tri!!!
And you all know Greg – he’s doing the Olympic with me AND WE’RE IN THE SAME WAVE!! This means I will see him for all of 3 seconds before he blows by me on the bike. Try not to embarrass me too much, ok buddy!? But I’m still excited about it!
If I have missed anyone….I’m sorry!!
Hey look where we get to swim:
My mentor Amy was there helping with Packet pick-up today and I asked her if I would be able to actually swim in that giant puddle, and she starting laughing and said “no” without missing a beat.
On the plus side, I am hereby announcing that I will climb up and go down the slide during the race once for every $50 people give me – See me in transition before the race to pre-pay. Cash only.
Here’s Amy giving me my bib!
And Amy, Greg, his sister – it’s her first tri too!!! – and myself at packet pick-up:
I missed these fine ladies at packet pick-up, but was told this selfie was taken in part due to my love of selfies, so in the blog it goes!!
I’m going to be decked out in tri fox gear!
AAHHHH I’m so excited!! Can’t think of anything else to write – Except GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!!!!!
