Triathlon Haul

On May 9, 2015 I participated in my first triathlon event. It was to a much smaller scale but to me it was an Iron Man. The event consisted of a 400 meter swim, a 10 mike bike ride, and a 2 mile run. I came in at 1:49:43 and I couldn't be happier. I was mentally ready to do it and only feared getting jelly legs at the transition. I am so proud of my body for not once having felt it. My lungs weren't very jazzed after the swim and I did need to use my shiny red inhaler but two pumps and I was ready to get on my bike. 

The feeling I get after completing an event like this is basically like I can do anything. I am the She Hulk and indestructible. Until after I eat and need to be put down for a nap. But still. It is such an ego and moral booster. I felt great. I honestly crossed the finish line and met husband and within about 5 minutes I was ready to go home. I didn't feel drained or anything. I was just freaking happy!

Here is a list of the super hot outfit (not) I wore. I found that purchasing separates was the best option for me because I have a booty and proud of it. And then there is the fact that the one piece suits are so small and compact I couldn't get it to go over my knees (ego and moral crusher).

Pearl Izumi Elite In-R-Cool Tri Singlet $56.73
