Today I ran in my first triathlon in South Berwick, Maine called the Pumpkinman. It started with a 1/3 mile swim that looked and seemed like more of a 1/2 mile, then onto a 17 mile bike through the beautiful rolling country hills. The last leg was a 3 mile run to a down hill finish line and pumpkin pie! I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed the experience of challenging myself over the course, although I was quite happy to cross the line.
Em‘s brother in law, Steven, joined me in the race…but I did not see him out on the course, as he finished ahead of me by 15 minutes. It was the first race for both of us and we both agreed that we were already looking forward to next year. Em grabbed some shots of us on her point and shoot. Thanks sweets! Much thanks and love go out to Em’s family who came out to root us on!
