I'm Addicted!!

Try it once; you'll be addicted, too. I have always wanted to try a sprint triathlon. I was training for one in the summer of '06 and then I found out I was pregnant with Avery, no more triathlon. So, when my sister told me last month that she was going to do one, I was all for it. Even though I only had a month to train, I knew it could be done; after all, it was just a sprint (which really just means short). Plus, I thought it would be a super fun thing to do with my sister. I had been working out consistently since the beginning of the year taking 2 weightlifting classes a week and several other aerobic classes. When I decided to do the triathlon, I stopped taking the aerobics classes and added running, swimming and biking to my weekly routine. I did keep the weight training to build up those muscles. Looking back, I really didn't train well, but I have to remember, I only had a month. The event was awesome and it definitely hurt, but I was so fun. I mean, I get to say, "I did it!!" We have already made plans for two other events this summer. My sister, cousin and I are running a women's 8K trail run in May. Then my sister and a couple of friends and I are running the Rock & Roll 1/2 marathon in VA Beach in August. That one should be super fun with bands on nearly every corner of the boardwalk. I may be a couple months prego on that one, but we shall see. What fun to look forward to!

Who's Who?

"They all look so much alike!" I get this comment a lot. So I was browsing through some old pictures and decided to post a few of the girls at the same age. See is you can tell the difference.

Where have we been?

We have been in a trasition, a LONG one! I don't have any final reports for you, but prayerfully, we will soon. Until then, I won't spend too much time trying to fill you in on the past year, but rather, I will update on our present excitements. Here are a few photos of the past several months. I promise I will do better from now on...:)
