The Tri Turtle Triathlon: Pictures and Commentary
My name is Jenny and I finished a triathlon a couple-a weeks ago (1/2 mile swim, 15 mile bike, 3.2 mile run). Here I am waiting for the swim start in my very cool bright green cap. Just waiting with 240 of my closest friends…
The 17th person out of the swim was… ME. I will not post a picture of that… instead I have chosen a photo of me starting the run portion… This would be the beginning of the run… After the bike – in which I placed 98th… I only lost, like 80 places after the swim… that’s all.
By the end of the run, I felt like this:
And I looked like this:
I like this next picture… It hides all the stuff I like to hide – no evidence of the cruel spirit of gravity… Plus I was seconds from crossing the finish line. Has anyone ever noticed that finish lines are particularly beautiful? I think finish lines are under-appreciated. Maybe I should start a club in Facebook, “Those Who Appreciate the Inherent Beauty of Finish Lines”.
My final finish place – 57th. That dog-gone bike! Guess what I’m working on this fall… You guessed it – eating cheesy-casseroles and baked goods.
