Rock on Rocketchix!!

This past weekend I participated in my very first triathlon. Well let me rephrase that, I participated in 1/3 of the triathlon. My sister in law, Cherith, is really into races and marathons and she encouraged me to participate. I love to swim and so I decided to get together two more girls to partake in the running and biking. So together with my best friend Kayce and my other sister in law Candice, we formed the dynamic trio! The race included a 350 swim in the frigid waters of the Natatorium, a 12 mile bike down LSU streets and concluded with a 2 mile run around the stadium.

It was an amazing experience. There were about 450 women that participated in the race and let me just tell you, they come in all shapes, sizes, ages and attitudes! It was so neat to see so many other gals working hard to reach the goal!

It was really one of the best days of my life! Well besides meeting and marrying my hubby.
It is amazing what we can do when we set our minds towards a goal. My ultimate goal is to one day do all three, but I am not sure that will happen in the near future.

I encourage you to look into these races, they are so much fun and everyone is so supportive and encouraging! Getting ready to start!!

Our triple threat triathlon team!

My amazing sister in law who completed the whole thing by herself and beat our team! Wow! She is super woman in my book!

Our handsome hunks cheering us on! My baby wasn't too thrilled with having to get up at 5:00 am, but he was such an encouragement to me!
