And the season has begun!!

What a fantastic way to begin the season! Today my boyfriend, who has been seriously struggling with the swim, finished his first triathlon!! I’m so happy I was there to cheer him across the finish line.

Then my day got better! This happened:

To me!!! I raced Athena, which is the last group of winners to be announced. After everyone else calmly and humbly accepted their medals, I screamed and freaked out like I’d just won the lottery! What can I say? It is my first win as an individual.

I just keep staring at the medal is disbelief. I now truly believe anything is possible. Anything.

      I’m sorry you had to miss your race, but it’s better to take care of yourself.

      I wrestled with the decision to race Athena, but I read an article talking about it, and it talks about how the division levels the playing field for people without giving an unfair advantage. At 5’9″, I’ll probably never be under 160 (maybe?) but it’s a nice thing to be able to compete against other people who have a heavy load to carry up huge hills, and not be too bothered by the tiny rockets blasting past me. Anyway, I’m fine with the category. It’s who I am.

        I may not be 5’9″, but I may not be under 160 again for a long time. . . I agree. I’m finally accepting where I am. This was to be my first Athena Race. That’s okay. I’m set to be Athena at the Olathe, as well.

        Thanks for that though. I needed to hear it!

  3. That’s exciting! Well done!
