Congrats to us ALL for running AND placing in our age groups! YEA!! It was such a beautiful (although a little chilly) day for a run and I am so proud of ALL of us for doing it! I think I am still on cloud 9! 😀 Check out the results!

(Insert from Tonya: Congrats to YOU, Tammy, for placing first in your age group!)

Congrats to Tonya & Billy for running the entire 5K!! Scott and I beat our time by 5 minutes and we still had to walk a little. I will be glad when we are well and are able to really see what we can do! Ian did great for his first race and hopefully he will continue running!

Scott and I along with two other friends went on a 6 mile bike ride yesterday…complete with mountains….yes, they were mountains, not hills….of this I am positive. Katy (who has 2 Triathlon Sprint’s under her belt) and Kalee (a newbie to riding) were on a road bike and a hybrid bike and they made biking look like they were gliding along glass. Scott and I were huffing and puffing, bouncing all over the place on our mountain bikes. I couldn’t get my gears to change half of the time and the borrowed bike Scott was on may have been just be a bit short for him. As Scott put it, it was yet another wake up call for us. I like to think of it as double the work out on a mountain bike…..and maybe when we get road bikes we will feel like we are on glass too. 😉 I also want padded bike shorts….it’s a must.

I have also signed up for a Tri Sprint Short in Baton Rouge on May 1! Yikes! Only 2 weeks to really ride and swim. It’s an all girl Tri and there are 4 of us doing it. Check it out at http://www.rocketchix.com/index.html. Once again…my goal is to finish!

Tonya, it was so nice to finally meet you and I look forward to coming to Dallas to do a run or a bike ride! Let us know what you find!
