Well, we did it. We finished our very first triathlon! Thank you Laura for committing to do the triathlon with me! Have you ever heard the expression, "I feel like I've been hit by a mack truck"? Well, that's how I feel right now! The swimming was SO much harder than I ever imagined. People were kicking lake water right in my mouth. A few times I had to stop and cough, gag and everything else to get the water out. The biking was hard too. There were some pretty big hills on the course. Then came the running...running is not my thing. I hooked up with this girl named Kristi and we were buds for pretty much the whole 3 miles. We finished together! It was a great experience and accomplishment but I don't see any triathlons in my near future.

Congratulations, Tracy. I'm proud
of all you. I know it took a lot of determination to stick with it. Reminds me of our Christian life and how we have to stick to the course and finish. Love ya, Judy

I am impressed! I am proud of you for putting your mind to it and completing it. You look really good. How many clothes sizes have you gone down?

You are inspirational - I could NEVER do it. It's also wonderful about your new job. Are you not working at the church preschool anymore? Take care!
