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!

Congrats, Jacqulyn!!!! You are awesome! It would be so fun to meet up to do one somewhere in between us. Give me a little time to get ready though, but I am serious about us doing one together. I'd like to start witha sprint triathalon as well.

So awesome that you find the time for this with 3 little ones. You'll have to tell me more about this! Sounds like fun. I actually used to be a sprinter (don't laugh, hard to imagine, I know) I need some sort of motvation to lose this baby weight for the ol' 10 year reunion!
