I am planning to write a thorough run-down of the race, but right now I am extremely tired so a quick synopsis will have to do!
Swim: Best race swim I have ever done. I was the calmest I have ever been, once the horn sounded, I swam smooth and actually got in a good rhythm, and I didn't have to fix my goggles!
Bike: I forced myself to take it pretty easy so I could still run after. I completely enjoyed the scenery around me and loved the ride.
Run: Hardest run I have ever done in my life. I ended up walking the big hills, but still hit my goal time!
I was overcome with emotion when I was running through the finisher chute and while cheering my dad into the finish. Tears welled up, but did not fall. Thank goodness, because I am an ugly crier!
I was overwhelmed all weekend with the love and support I received. We have an amazing family.
