This weekend has been so much fun! My husband Josh ran his first race, a sprint triathlon.
He and little J have been my biggest supporters during all my running and races the past couple of years. Now that I’m taking a break(ahem, injury) I can’t think of a better way to not run than to watch my own husband push himself.
Let’s back up a bit. My husband doesn’t like running, and has never swam competitively. He loves mountain biking on all the trails behind our house. He wanted to sign up for something that would give him more direction and goals while biking when he saw the sprint tri and signed up.
Saturday morning we all headed over to the swim start. Josh was a bit nervous but it was such a beautiful morning. He just wanted to get started.
He did great on the swim and only got hit with arms a couple of times. He heard horror stories of being swam over so it was a relief.
The transition went well and he was off on his bike! Unfortunately, he used his mountain bike and he said it was killer! Way to heavy for a road race, but he still did great.
Another transition went well, but he said he was pretty tired. Luckily the run is only 3.1 miles so he came into the finish in no time. I’m so proud of him! Tri’s are such a fun spectator sport. I love running to the transitions with J and getting to scream and cheer for him through all the different parts of the race.
And his metal is huge! I’m secretly plotting the next tri or race we can do together;)
The rest of the weekend was spent with family. Josh’s cousin’s little girl turned 1!
Church today, and a nice relaxing evening is on the agenda. Love Sundays=)
ever been in a triathlon or cheered at one?
