Wurst Tri Ever

I love the name of the triathlon I participated in this past Sunday. The name comes from the location. It was held at Landa Park in New Braunfels, Texas which is the same location of the Wurst Fest which is a big celebration of German culture in Texas. Lots of brats and beer. Good times.

So I made through the entire triathlon. It was a Sprint distance triathlon: 350m swim, 14 mile bike and 3 mile run. I am so excited and happy. It was tough, but so much fun. I didn't have any problems with fearing what was under the water. I had a lot of peace. I know there were lots of people praying for me. I really love doing triathlons. Everyone is so nice and it really is a lot of fun. I placed 16th in my age group (females 35-39) and 85th out of all the females on a really tough climb on the bike leg. This was the first time I had ever downshifted all the way to the bottom of my gears to make some of the hills we rode on. But it was super cool. I really, really enjoyed it. And I can't wait to do it again next year.

Love the pics. Glad you did well too and weren't scared of the water. I love the water but with age has become the fear of whats underneath, funny how that happens.
