Happy Monday, friends!! The full recap of yesterday’s half-ironman is coming…I have so much to share, but was too wiped out after the race to write it last night. Plus, I wanted to spend the rest of the afternoon with the boys rather than sitting in front of the computer.
Lots of good things (36ish minute swim!!) and not so good things (I crashed on the bike) happened. The rain held off but the heat and humidity came out to make for a very long, sweltering day. The run was a gut check. But as one of my Instagram friends said “This is a memory bank race for IMLP. Draw in the good and build on the bad.”
I finished in 6:03ish (results have not been posted yet so I don’t know my exact time or placing yet)…but I do know that I won my age group. Granted, this wasn’t a huge race, but placing in my age group makes the day a bit brighter and somehow even makes me forget some of the pain I felt during the run!
Thank you for all of your messages, comments, and tweets wishing me good luck. They mean so much to me!
Check back tomorrow – hope to have the recap finished by then! =)
