My sister Christy completed her very first sprint triathlon this morning!!  Words can’t describe how proud I am of her for taking it on and finishing with success.  She did it with almost no training (minus the fact that she is a runner) and just dove straight in.  Like my first tri, she even used a mountain bike on a very hilly course… which is so much more challenging than a regular road bike!  It’s hard to describe unless you’ve tried it, but she was a trooper for going out there and keeping a smile on her face.  Her least favorite part was the swim, which is also my hardest sport of the three.  I can’t wait to talk more about it with her as you instantly share a deep bond with fellow triathletes.  She said that it was the hardest race she’s ever done, but it also gave her the most gratification when finished.  I couldn’t agree more!!!  It is such a rewarding experience… and most importantly, fun.

I’m looking forward to a lazy Sunday – and for me that means brunch, nap, gym and a few movies at home later on.  🙂  It’s been a good weekend, friends.
