I had to bribe Aaron to leave this gravel pit in order to get him to come and pose in a photo with me. This is after the race.
So, I had not planned on running in this triathlon, but when I heard that two of my brothers and a brother in law of mine were going to run in it, I wanted to run in it. But I didn't want to run it as the only girl running it, so I didn't sign up until three of my sister in laws decided to right before. It was hard... I didn't feel as ready this time as I did last summer, but I am glad I did it and I hope I feel more ready for the next one.

The left is me just barely starting the running leg telling Aaron Jr in sign language that I LOVE HIM... and with jelly legs after riding the bike.
The right one is a crazy woman running through. Watch out! It is of me just a few yards from the finish line. I am a weirdo.
Crossing the finish line. I got done, took a bow to my family, and then I was approached by the lady who was supposed to put a medal around my neck telling me that they had just run out, but that she would get one to me. So, I was the first person to cross who didn't get one. :) Hahaha. So the medal I am wearing in the photos is borrowed... Anyhow, a couple of days ago, I received my medal in the mail. It didn't feel quite the same as if I had received it at the finish line, but it will do. :) SO funny.
