My First Triathlon

 

If you’ve been following me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram (hannahyoungancrafty) then you already know that I completed my first triathlon today!!

 

The race was .5 mile swim, 18.1 mile bike and 3.1 mile run.

 

I’ve been training since May. Wow was I nervous today! There were 1100+ participants. My two goals going into the race were to have fun and complete the race in 2 hours. I accomplished both! I had fun and my time was 2 hours 10 seconds. I seriously can’t WAIT to do another one!

 

Here is an overload of pictures for you:

What an accomplishment! These things can be addicting. Yes you might be thinking I’m crazy saying that. There is just something about pushing your body physically to the limit.

 

If you want the motivation to workout, I triathlon is a great place to start!!
