I ran this one by myself, as opposed to the RockNRoll 1/2 that I ran in Virginia Beach. I trained for and ran with my BFF Heather. It was a lot harder to run alone, even though I trained alone.

|The rest of my fan club. My little Mr. Handsome, Cory, Madison, Me & Maddie's friend Lily (a budding runner!)|
|Me and my man. (Nice hair, huh?)|
|I found my friend Jackie- she ran with pneumonia!|
|Crossing the finish line! whew!|
All that being said, I am glad I did it, and I still had a decent finish time. I honestly don't know if I will ever do another one, because it is very time consuming to train, and it is a lot of wear and tear on my joints. I am very interested in trying a triathlon, but haven't done any research yet, to see what is available in my area. I would also need a trainer or partner, since I have no experience there.
Have any of you done a triathlon? Any suggestions?
A big thanks to all my friends and family who have been so supportive and encouraging.
