This past weekend I raced in a triathlon along with my husband, oldest son and a couple of girlfriends.
This is a 3 part race that involves swimming, biking and running: the swim is 1/2 mile, the bike is 12 miles, and the run is a 5k or 3.1 miles. And that’s called the “sprint” distance!
I love to exercise and feel that it is an integral part of my sewing career. After all, if I don’t keep myself healthy, how will I possibly live long enough to make all the quilts I’m dying to create??
As with quilting, I have different fitness goals depending on the situation. My goal this weekend was to cheer on my husband and son while encouraging my two friends to complete their first triathlon.
This was my 5th triathlon so it’s pretty old-hat to me by now. I set modest goals and didn’t finish with a super fast time, but I got the job done and was pleased with the results.
Now that the race is out of the way, I can look forward to a different sort of weekend coming up: my guild’s annual quilting retreat.
I’m just glad it is happening the week after my race, not before, so I can eat a little more and rest a lot less! I’ll post again next week with pictures of all the fun I’m sure to have!!
