Hayden View Triathlon

JoAnn and I right before the swim.

My kids and I right after I crossed the finish line
So this year I did my second sprint triathlon which is a 1/2 mi. swim, 10.2 mi. bike, and a 4 mi. run. I did it all in 1hr and 25min. The morning was starting out to be really cloudy and a bit chilly. The water was really choppy but wasn't as cold as I thought it would be. My chain fell off on the bike and got tangled up pretty bad and thank goodness some guy stopped his race to help me because I really didn't know how to fix it. I wish I knew his name so I could thank him because I thought that I was done for the race. For the run I had a 7 and 1/2 min pace for it. I am really proud and excited about finishing and my time. Sorry for the bragging but I am just really proud of myself and feel very accomplished and on a little bit of a high still from the race. I wouldn't have done it this year if my sister JoAnn hadn't asked me to, and since it was her first I couldn't let her do it by herself. I am really glad that we did this together.
Here is the time of everyone else: JoAnn Isaksen was 1hr44min. , Melanie Patterson was 1hr16min., and Ben Tran was 1hr15min. We all had fun and cheered each other on.
