Times to beat...

Here is last years numbers...

00:26:50 - swim 1/2 mile (spent to much time watching..those dudes are fast)
00:04:00 - turn 1
00:58:06 - bike - 18.6 rate / 18 mile
00:02:32 - turn 2
00:50:22 - run - 10:05 pace / 5 mile (kinda slow for me as an average)
02:21:50 - total time

Need to do better this year...

8:00 A.M. SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 8, 2012 SQUARE LAKE PARK is the next TRI as of today I am 3 weeks from the event.

.5 mile swim
18 mile bike
5 mile run

...the challenge is laid out before me, I have been preparing and all I care to do is finish with a bent of competing against myself. So a time better than 2:21:50 is the goal.

Watched some of the 2011 Kailua-Kona, Hawaii triathalon the other about a test of endurance! Oct. 13, 2012 | 2.4 mile swim / 112 mile bike / 26.2 mile run

Best day just got trumped!

One...not "the most" but one of my most memorable days just got trumped. Let me be clear the day I accepted Christ is number one, getting married has to be number 2, however the birth of my kidos and me getting water baptized have always fought for a 3rd is the photo I have and will cherish forever...

Yep that is me getting water baptized...just like the day I gave my life to Christ I can remember all the details to this day. Lake Norfolk was flooded, Pastor Cary Sims and Pastor Vic Porter baptized me. They teased about holding me under a little longer just to make sure it takes...which I still do. This was a huge moment for me and it set me on my course!

However...there is a new photo that takes its place...

Yep that's my oldest kido about to be baptized by me...I do not have words to explain the emotions I feel other than...I am so thankful for this opportunity!

...and it is all done!

I love my job.

A face that loves God with all her heart...she blesses me every day and yes she learned that from her mom!

...she learned this from me!

New PR for a 5 mile run!

5 miles at an 8:10 pace...not bad for me!

Let's see if I can do that after swimming a .5 mile then biking 18 miles and your legs feel like logs!
