Next Triathlon is Tomorrow!!

My next Triathlon is tomorrow. It is back in Naperville, but this time will be Co-ed. It will be a shorter swim, but the bike and run are the same. I have not been training like I had hoped and have gained a few pounds since the last one, but I know that I will be able to finish it and be motivated to get back into the swing of things. Thanks for all your constant encouragement and motivation during my journey. I appreciate each and every one of you and whatever journey you may be undertaking remember YOU CAN DO IT!!


Here are the kids after I finished my first Triathlon. They were at each step of the way for me cheering me on. My transitions were a little longer than they should have been because I stopped for kisses from them each leg of the race. It's exactly what I needed to finish. Keith and the kids will be there for me tomorrow cheering me on. Keith was out of town during my first tri, so he is excited to see me participate in one. I will blog soon and let you know how it goes.

Remember, with Christ all things are possible. :-)

Looking good Melissa! Have fun tomorrow! I know you'll do great! Don't worry about those few pounds! You're doing it the right way...a little at a time. You'll get there!
