I did it. Finally. I competed in a triathlon. One “life to-do” checked off the list.
It wasn’t a flat, ho hum one, it was called the Tri Lanai. An off road X-Terra type of one that was anything but easy. I can honestly say it was one of the hardest physical thing’s I’ve done, in one of the most beautiful places, and was really insanely rewarding.
The person who talked me into the .5 mile open ocean swim, 17 mile mountain bike (super steep & hilly), 4.2 mile run (also super hilly) was…my mom…who competed as well… and is 60. She happens to be a triathlon machine.
It was quite the day. Enjoy the pics.
Note: I must say I felt rather stylin’ thanks to my Tavik gear, Maui Girl top, Wildfox Tee, & Roxy Athletix shorts…but there is just no way to make a swim cap & goggles look cute.
