Ready or not, here I come!

On your marks, get set, GO!

Bitterroot Tri-athalon here I come.....

Praying they have a backhoe at the finish line to scoop me up in because I'm bound and determined to make it to and across the finish line..... I just don't know what is going to happen after I cross.

In years past I've wanted to do this. I've wanted to do this tri and do it by myself. Proving what? I don't know.

I've not been able to.... by myself.... so this year, my team mate for life and eternity is going to help me.

The SM will be doing the swim and bike part for me, I'll do the run, and knowing The SM, he'll just keep on going and run next to me encouraging me as he does daily.

To all my family participating this weekend, GOOD LUCK!! It's not been easy for any of them. They all have stories of triumph getting to where they are in their training.

It's an all day thing. A day of calling out and encouraging each other on, and I'm so excited to be a part this year!!


  1. Good luck to you! I hope you have the strength you need to complete your goal.

    I wish I could be there to cheer ALL of you on! We decided that my sister with her four kids there, and me with my six would be too much for my mom...
