Jane Update

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

Just got back from a well baby check with Jane. Shes 31 pounds and 36 inches tall. She just turned 2 at the end of December. Amazing how time flies. She blew all of the cognitive milestones out of the water. She's right on par with motor skills... I'm guessing she won't be a tight rope walker! LOL. The doctor is still amazed at how smart she is. It warms my heart.

Love to you all,

I would REALLY like to be onefiftysomething before I go on vacation. I weighed in this morning at 160.

My gravy goal is to get to onefiftysomething before vacation and maintain it while we are gone.

We leave for vacation next Wednesday.

I can do this... even if it is 159.5, its still onefiftysomething.

Have a great day!

    I know what you mean. That often infinitesimal one tenth of a pound makes all the difference in the world to our self esteem.

Race results

Monday, August 26, 2013

The big ol' grin should say it all.

Had a not so good swim and T1, bike was the fastest I've ever gone in competition, T2 was eh and considering the amount of pain I was in, the run was pretty ok.

My official time was 1:15:08. My splits came off my watch:

Swim - 6:49
T1 - 1:17
Bike - 33:35
T2 - 1:25
Run - 32:02

I finished third out of 13 girls in my age class (the official results say 11 girls, so I'm assuming 2 didn't show for the race) and 50th overall out of 112 individual competitors. Pretty high note to end my tri season on. I have one more 5k slated in October.

Have a great day yall!

    You did a very good job. Congratulations on the good finish.

You can probably find out the lady's name from the list of race finishers in her age category (you'll have to guess her age group). It shouldn't be too hard if you know her approximate time.

That's a great end for your tri season. (And don't you look great!!)

Have a good week.

I love your inspiring quote.

    I forgot to mention there was a woman there that was truly inspiring...

I wish I knew her name. She and I were talking after the race. She had a knee replacement and told her son that when she was able to, she would do a triathlon with him.

She told me she used to be 321 pounds and that she was down to around 260. SHE COMPLETED THE ENTIRE SPRINT TRIATHLON DISTANCE. She fell on the bike and scratched her arm up pretty bad, but got up and finished. She walked the 5k. She almost moved me to tears when she told me her story.

It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes, "The miracle is not that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start".

I am so proud of her!
