Triathlon here I come

Well for any of you who don't know I'm getting ready for my first triathlon. It will be on Saturday, May 17. The triathlon I'm doing is called "Women of Steel", and this year it is being held in American Fork. I am so excited for it.

I'm doing it with three girls that work with me at the club (Emily, Ann Elise & Cathrine). Emily got us all started. We all train together and have fun.

The triathlon we're doing is 5K run(3.1 miles), 10 mile bike ride, & 300 meter swim. I've still got a lot to do to get ready but I'm getting there. I can do the 5K for sure and the other two are close but I've got to get to where I can do all three one right after the other.

It is the same day as the Ogden Marathon. My finishing goal is between 1 1/2 hours and hopefully 1 hour 45 minutes. I just want to make it back to Ogden in time for Chase & Gavin to do the kids K with their cousins at the Ogden Marathon. If I can do that I figure that I did pretty well, especially for a first timer.
