Maria Triathlon 7/18/05


Somer Triathlon 7/18/05

This year, my friends Maria and Somer (pictured here) started training for triathlons. They have completed two so far this summer and have a few more still on the schedule. I went to the one last weekend to cheer them on and am absolutely amazed and impressed by these ladies:

* 1/4 mile swim
* 15K bike
* 5K run

Somer finished 9th out of the 69 women in her age group at 1:27:39. Maria was 17th in the same group at 1:30:46. They've been training hard and doing awesome.

Then there's the bad news: Somehow, Maria convinced me to train for an all-women triathlon next summer. Be prepared for lots of complaining on this site. I'm excited and terrified all in the same moment.
