having completed several races (including a couple of off-road triathlons, a marathon, a 5K, several half marathons, and a handful of olympic distance triathlons), i figured it was time to conquer the sprint triathlon.
fountain valley triathlon
5K (3.1 mile) run: 22 minutes & 50 seconds
13.7 mile bike ride: 49 minutes & 59 seconds
175 yard swim: 5 minutes & 45 seconds
final finish time: one hour, 18 minutes & 34 seconds.
i was the 4th woman to cross the finish line, & i came in 24th overall. but the real excitement came when the kids raced.
yep! yep! gavin & owen both completed their very first triathlons. they swam, biked & ran across the finish line, receiving their very own bright & shiny medals.
