Busy Busy week and 70.3 Racing for Recovery Half Triathlon
On Tuesday, we had probably our most low key day of the week. I did a short workout, and then we went to the mall for the storytime.
On Thursday, we got up and went to the gym for another light workout, and then did some grocery shopping. I was so excited to find chicken on sale!
Sunday was the day of my first Half Ironman triathlon. The distances are 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 mile run, for a total of 70.3 miles. I did a full race recap here. It has more pictures and details about each specific part. It was great to have a race with so many friends there. The highlight of the race for me was coming around towards the end of the first run loop and seeing Ryan, Keira, and Soren there cheering for me. This is the picture when I saw them:
