Triathlon/Ragamuffin Top Update

So I’m a bit overdue on this one, but I’ve been on vacation. So get over it.

Last Saturday I checked off one of the first things from my bucket list (a small one really) since I made it as well as a goal (or kinda half of one) for the Ragamuffin Top challenge.

I did my first triathlon!
It was freaking sweet.
I gotta say, there’s nothing like the feeling of running across the finish line for the first time after spending months getting ready.
Even if it was a fairly short sprint, it felt like a big accomplishment and great introduction into the sport.
And it made me aware just how much work I REALLY need to do before my Olympic distance in P.G. a month and a half from now!!

I’ll share more details on how the race went, play by play, later this week.  But in the meantime, check out the video below to get a glimpse of what the morning of my first triathlon was like.
My favorite moment in the video is right around 4:45.
But if you have a weak stomach, or just don’t like grossness, you may wanna skip from 4:30 to about 4:50.
There’s the disclaimer.
You’ve been warned!
