I am a Triathlete!!

Well, folks, I did it. I can now say that I am a Triathlete. Below are my results. My goal was to to the Tri in under 3 hours. I did that. Another goal was to not be last in my age division. Did that too. :-) I will blog more about the actual event when I get home and can include some pictures. All I can say is it was AWESOME. I have just proven to myself that I can do anything I put my mind to. I just wanted to thank you all for your support and encouragment through all of this. I could not have done it without you.

GOOD JOB! You are such a motivation to me at this very moment. I have been reading through the forum on Active.com and am getting so psyched to train for my first tri. So, check my blog mid september, and you'll see a similar shout of joy coming from my corner of the web.
CONGRATULATIONS and keep up the excellent work!

Love,
Em
