My good friend Megan told me all about this great race, right in my back yard, mostly biking, really encouraging me to do it and when I asked her if she was going to race she said NO! HAHA Well she put the bug in my ear and I couldnt stop thinking about it.  I was sure I wouldnt do it but I kept getting ready "just in case".  Saturday all my boys left at 6AM to go hunting and I thought "I'm running that race today."  I showed up and I must say the other racers matching outfits, totally in shape bodies, and air of professionalism were a bit intimidating. I had visions of me, coming in an hour after the last place finisher.  But once the air horn went off there was no turning back and I started to run. It was a 2.5 mile run, 11 mile bike ride, 1.5 mile run.  The goal was to finish and I DID.  My first race, and I must say it was AWESOME! Maybe I'll do it again:)
