St. George TriAthlon




St. George Triathlon

After our 2nd tri... the ShacTri (April 19, 2008)we decided that we would try a little bigger one. Chase's little sister Tara did that one with us... but we couldn't convince her to do the next one. On May 10, 2008 Chase and I did our 3rd tri at Sand Hallow . It was the biggest one that we have ever done. My brother Jeremy and cousin Tyler did it too. The weather was so bad that after they did a couple of heats they wouldn't let mine or Chase's group go. Instead they cancelled the rest of the swim because two many people came in on the rescue boat. I am not going to lie but I was so relieved because that is my least favorite part.. I hate swimming even though I know it is good for you! So they started our race from the end of the swim so that we could run to our bikes and have that transition. Chase's heat started about 20 minutes before mine but after we passed each other on the bike he decided to wait for me so we could finish together. That was probably the best thing about the whole race. We FINISHED TOGETHER.. the run and all!! Now, that is something that I will never forget. These are the kind of moments that you charish and will never forget!!

o.k. can I just say you two are sooooo cute!!! I love that you guys are so busy!! You create the best memories that way. I really loved Cedar City when I was there but when I moved it was time. That is awesome you did, was it Olympic, triathlon? I wish I had more time to train, Lauren doesn't like it too much on the back of the bike for two hours, i tried to pull her on a boat swimming it just didn't work ;) I'm addicted and want to do more, I'm impressed you two do it together. I thought of that the whole time I was in my race. I wish I had someone to do it with. But, my hubby and mom and dad and little girl cheered me on and that was the best. Good to see how you are. And you guys look fabulous!! You both have always looked great!

DeAnna-Hi, this is Jackie Warnick, I'm Fran's younger sister. I stumbled across your blog on here, and I just had to ask how Jayson is doing? I haven't talked to him since he left on his mission! We were really good friends, and I miss talking to him. If you don't mind, please tell him I said hello. Thanks!

So, I've caved. Marie and I are going to run a Triathlon together on Oct 4. I'm so excited! And a little scared (I'm not a good swimmer). Have any tips for me?
