First Triathlon!

Couples Triathlon Logo

A few weeks ago I did my first triathlon. I figured I can swim and ride my bike pretty well, and I can tolerate running, so why not try to do all three at once?? Turns out it’s pretty hard. I think I did pretty well for my first one, though, despite having nearly-flat tires on my bike (whoops) and my legs cramping up after the ride causing me to lose 4 minutes on my last transition leading to a snail’s pace on the run (10:39/mile). I still managed to eek out a time of 01:36:17, only slightly slower than the average male triathlete time of 01:31:00. The next triathlon is July 31st. My goal is to be better than average and I’d love to finish below 01:30:00.

Here’s a video of the last one. I should have some pictures soon!

Austin Winter Wonderland!

So… apparently it snows here. We got the day off of work and all the schools were closed because of it! I guess when you get snow yearly or bi-yearly you really want to take advantage of it! 1 day later it was all melted and hot. Go figure!

And Forest hit me with a snowball while I was in the trunk of the car looking for something. It went all in the trunk, but I couldn’t get very mad about it because hey, it’s snow. Fun!
