Yesterday's triathlon was unbelievably amazing! I absolutely LOVED my wetsuit free ocean swim in the perfect 70 degree water and was truly bummed when it was over. I adored the 18 miles of beautiful pristine Malibu coast on my bike. I may be the only one who slowed down on the downhills, too much speed freaked me out. I'll admit there was a moment when I shouted out loud.... "My A$$ hurts!"
The 4 mile on foot part, well I walked it. POWER WALKED it. I maintain a 13:40 walking mile and well, running would be a whole lot less fun anyway. I did it my way and it was inspiring! Cheering with others who were up for the challenge. Celebrating not only my victory but that of my awesome friend and occasional swim partner who won his age group! Talk about a high. I finished the whole thing in 2:52 minutes and I'm hooked. Today's sore muscles actually inspired me to sign up for another one.
