I enjoy having our kids there but it's not super convenient but I have missed having them there. Life with Altra and a new baby means i have to leave the kids with grandma to race sometimes and that it's easier to leave the kiddos home with dad when we have a baby. Actually my husband generally stresses out regardless and isn't always the funnest to be around at a race. He gets more stressed than I do and I get that handling 4 kids is stressful, but love, I do it everyday :)
Sorry, getting sidetracked. My point is they were there and I was grateful to hear and see them and play by the water with them after.
As soon as we got there I rushed to sign up, set up, and fill the baby up :)
Swim - Not the best time but not bad. Zero visibility and stinky water but a nice temp and pretty color :) I appreciated not feeling all sloppy and rushed in my stroke but pretty long an strong. Very hard to sight on the long length that we did twice but I found a tall tree to sight off of behind the buoy so it worked out
Bike - saddle sores. Oh the saddle sores. Really I've been dealing with them since our baby was born 5 months ago, but they've flared up bad this week. I just couldn't sit comfortably which meant little power. I also think I got stung by a bee on the way back. Oh well. I did really want to see how well I'd do with the extra time I've been putting into the bike.
|No I didn't ride like that the whole time but it may have been more comfortable|
|Running in a new mystery Altra shoe, always fun being around prototypes|
Really looking forward to my big race on August 4th which I will preview in a soon to be written post
