After 13 weeks of training, 7 weeks without a beer, hundreds of dollars in gear, and a lot of hard work I am participating in the Memphis in May triathlon tomorrow. I'm nervous, but ready for the .9 mile swim, 25 mile bike, and the 10k run. Say a prayer for me.
I did it. Yeah! I wanted to finish in under 3.5 hours, and I did. My official time was 3 hours and 24 minutes. The wind was brutal on the day of the race. It blew me off course during the swim, and it made the bike very tough. I was so happy when I got to the run that I smiled the whole 6.4 miles. I could not have done it without my training partner Kelly, the support of my wife, and the encouragement of my family. Thanks y'all. Next up....a full marathon.
