This last weekend, Eric and I did the Mountain Tropic Tri. I may never do a Bear Lake tri again... the water was SO hypothermic! But besides that, it was a ton of fun, and I'm addicted to doing these now. We are already signed up for another one in September. :)
The night before, they marked us all over with our numbers. Then we went and had dinner. Afterwards, we went to the camping spot we were staying with a lady named Shelly that Eric works with. She calls him Donkey - because that's what people call him at work - and it's so funny to hear people call him that all the time. We stayed in their trailer- it was huge! Thanks so much Shelly for all of your hospitality! :)
The next morning, we got up at 6 to get ready and to head over to the Tri. After swimming in the coldest water (I would have died if I had been on the Titantic), we finally warmed up biking. Afterward, we snapped this shot.
And after we were all done running...TAH DAH! :)
Eric ran ahead of me - even with a hurt ankle - this just makes me want to train harder so I can run faster. hehe
PS I think Eric looks super hot in these pictures.
After the race, we signed up for our free massages, and while we were waiting, ate our race meal.
And I took pictures of our numbers/medals.
After all of that, we went back and relaxed in Shelly's trailer. That morning they had to make a ton of pancakes, and saved us these "bear lake monsters". :) So cute.
It was so fun and I can't wait for our next one!
This time I'm definitely training harder so I can one day be the top three girls racing! What a dream, right?
