Triathlon in ACTION!

Driving up to the transition area (yeah I am already in my helmet... I was ready!)
Transition area ... you came here after the swim and then back here after the bike!
Right before we split up to get in our designated swim groups... they split the boys and the girls into different pools (thank goodness it was warm!)
Standing the line waiting to start in my fantastic silver swim cap!
Whew... one down two to go!

I DID IT! Today Shane, his buddy Tim and I all competed in a Intro-athlon.... it consisted of a 300 meter swim, 8.5 km mountain bike ride and ending with a 5 km run. It was such a cool experience and so much harder than I thought it was going to be! The swim which I was not concerned about going into was hard and the bike ride that I felt very prepared for (I take spin class lots) was hard too. Although they did send us all through the hills above the University and there were so many steep, really scary parts of the trail and to top it off it was SO rocky. The run which I was the most worried about was yeah pretty much what I expected, but finished with flying colors. My goal was to do it in under 2 hours, I really had no idea how long it would take and ended up doing it in 1 hour and 30 mins on the dot! I still have to figure out what I did in the individual events but I am pretty proud of that! We got some great pictures that I will post tomorrow... So I had a FANITASTIC SATURDAY and can't believe I am still awake so off to bed!

Oh Hello!

It hasn't been that long since I last wrote but I feel like so much has been missed! I had my actual Spring Break and I didn't go anywhere so Shane decided to create "Liz Day", and I got to choose what we did for the whole day and he surprised me with dinner! So he made breakfast, then we went to "She's Out of My League" and "Bounty Hunter". I am totally going to recommend "She's Out of My League", it was GREAT! Then we played games and followed by a fantastic dinner at... Takashi... which is great if you have never been!

Then back to school I went... but I did get my second Biology test back and I got an "A" YEAH I KNOW! I was beyond excited and now I know I will pass that class (because it was a question whether or not after the first test)! Whew
I also started a new job, on top of school and Pottery Barn. I now am a sales associate at Ann Taylor LOFT! The best part is I can literally walk across the street to go to work now!
And on top of everything I am trying to find a Condo to live in because lets face it, it is a great time to buy!
So that is my life for the moment in a nut shell!
