Single and Tri-ing!

The amazing Divas!

Drew's Divas!

One of my best friends from high school days was doing the tri too!

119, yo.

So much to say… well, I FINISHED! Yes, I, Erincita finished my very first triathlon! All I can say is, I’m gonna do it again! You know, agreeing to do the triathlon in the first place made me nervous, to say the least. However, knowing that I was doing it with 9 other girls gave me great motivation. Not only that, but doing it for a cause (Drew) was a big deal for me. I am still having a hard time believing that I really did it. It wasn’t easy, that’s for sure, but I now know what I’m made of and will do it again.
Next time I’ll definitely have a road bike instead of a mtn. bike. Oh, and I’ll bring back-up just in case I get a flat like I did on Saturday . Such a bummer, for real!
Friends, I am proud. You will definitely see more entries in the future of the coming triathlons. I hear it’s an addiction, and I think I’m hooked!

Triathlons scare me, for I am non-athletic. I think anyone who does them for fun is kind of awesome, and I think anyone who does them for a good cause is REALLY awesome! Go Erin!

Who's Heidi? Can I ditto what she said? Very impressive.
Now what is this about a flat tire? The day of the race? I appreciate tips like road bike vs mt bike. If I ever do get the gumption to do it, I will remember your sage advice.

Good job Erin! Tri's are so fun! I've only done one and have wanted to do another ever since but have been lazy. You look great lady!
