Shark Attack Triathlon

My sister Carrie and I did a sprint triathlon together in Utah. We had so much fun together! Hopefully we have started a new tradition and can do one together every year.

Yikes, we are getting old!

our devoted fans

I love you Carrie! What a fun day!

The most exciting part of the day was watching the kids triathlon. I am so dang proud of my daughters, nieces, and nephews. What awesome kids they are. I would never have tried doing a triathlon at their age. It was a 100m swim, 5 mile bike, and a 1.2 mile run. What an inspiration they are to me! I was teary eyed watching them cross the finish line. So much fun!!!! Great job Abbie, Hannah, Courtney, Drake, Kate, Sadie, and Carson!
