and did it well!  my first ever triathlon baby!  i had such an amazing time!...except for the part where my frickin chain came off during the bike, but i kept my cool, pulled over for a minute or two and wrestled it back on!  so, i could have had an even faster bike split if it wasn't for that!  i finished the 1/3 mile swim, 18 mile bike (although my bike computer said it was about 18.5!) and 3 mile run, which was killer, in 1:41:06.  i came in 5th place in my age group out of 144!!!  i met some of the pros which was very cool and my hubby ryan got tons of awesome pics, which i will post soon.  my friends (and clients), jane and kevin, came out to support me which was so great, it really meant alot, and my dad came to cheer me on as well...love you dad!  there were so many spectators there, it made me feel so proud to be a part of it!  one highlight was when a random spectator called out my number and screamed "you are so buff"  i loved it!   such a fun day!  i've said it before, and i will say it again...you GOTTA try a TRI!   now, on to vegas baby, for my first figure show of the year.  in the gym tomorrow for some back, shoulders, and triceps...bring it on!  more later....thanks for reading friends!  peace.
