We went to Portage Lakes today to do a trial triathlon (a trial-athlon). I went through the swim, bike, and run and practiced my transitions, the part where you throw clothes and shoes on your sandy wet self and grab your bike. I feel better about it now that I know the route a bit better and was able to do it.
There were a bunch of other people there practicing also, and the competitive part of me was wondering who I could beat which is silly, I should be happy to just finish!
Then, after an hour of vigorous activity, I went back to the beach where Dave, Karilyn, and Heidi were waiting for me. Heidi was extremely cranky so I walked her to sleep. Here she sleeps on the beach all bundled up. I was so jealous.
Karilyn was cold in the water and Dave said that there was nothing he could do about that. She said, "yes there is, you can pray for God to warm it up." hum...
