So, I signed up for my first half ironmant after only doing one sprint distance triathlon. Since signing up I have done a lot of training and two additional sprints for experience.
I am not scared about this race except for one little tiny detail. Enter the wetsuit. How do you breathe in one of these things?? This is the scariest part for me.
The weekend after Pacing for Pieces half-marathon I raced in the Parris Island Sprint Triathlon. This is the first race of the Set-Up Events South Carolina triathlon series and the kick-off to triathlon season!

Thanksgiving morning I got up bright and early for the annual Hartsville Turkey Trot 5k race. It has become a tradition to do this 5k before stuffing myself with food. This year was special because my husband and my mom joined in along with my friends! We hit the road for Hartsville around 6:40am and arrived at the Hartsville Y around 7:15. There was plenty of time for a bathroom stop and a 1 mile warm up.
It was super chilly but I was so thankful to be doing what I love with some of the people that I love the most! My husband is not a runner per se and my mom is a walker. I am some ways have passed the runner’s “bug” onto them!
The only picture I have of me finishing since my husband, who is usually the photographer, was running! I sure hope I beat that guy who is rocking baggy clothes and cotton! Get some lycra, dude!
The husband finishing up; even he knows not to wear baggy cotton! ;)
Unfortunately there is no picture of mom finishing. I ran back to find her on the course and wasn’t there to take a picture but she did great despite the hills. I lied and told her there was only 1 so she would do the race with me. There were actually 3. Oops!
I love racing with friends. It’s like Where’s Waldo trying to find me in this picture but I promise I am there. Stupid shadow!
My time was 23:00 even. I should have checked my watch because I could have pushed it more to get under 23. Oh well, my time was good enough for 1st place in the 25-29 age group and an oh so groovy bag that I will never use!
Cheers to the next race,
