Saturday I competed in my first Ironman 70.3 (aka: Half Ironman). This is my fourth season of racing in triathlons. Wow, what a day! After swimming 1.2 miles, biking 56 miles, and running 13.1 miles, I was exhausted! (By the way, I finished in 6 hours, 12 minutes.)
My post-race tradition is that I get to eat a cupcake (or two or three). This serves as my motivation during the race. Of course I was excited about this race because I knew we would be going to Elizabethan Desserts after. But after I was done, I just wanted to go to sleep. We still got my cupcakes anyway. Pictures to come!
