I TRI because I CAN

Last weekend, Phoenixx and I went to Seattle for the Daskin Sprint Triathlon. It was quite the trip. I have only traveled with Phoenixx on a plane by myself once and it was alot harder than planned. He cried the entire flight there and most on the way home. The night before the TRI he woke up at 12:30am wide awake. He was wrestling me in bed, squawking and so on. He didn't go back down until 3:30am and I got up at 5am for the race. It was raining and lightening at 5am which made me nervous for the swim in the lake. Once we got there I mustard up energy and did it. I absolutely loved the bike and the run, the swim on the other hand- at least I didn't almost drown this year. haha. I was with 3 great girlfriends and none of us really trained for the race. I kept thinking the whole race "NEXT YEAR" I'll train. LOL. I never train for anything, wishful thinking. The funniest thing about the weekend was Phoenixx scaring Dianes dog, chasing him all around. That bully- gets it from his dad:)

Hey Bri

I admire and envy your drive to do an triathalon! How fun to be able to go with friends too. Your little boy is adorable! We need to get together soon and let our boys play with each other. Glad to hear all is well. Smiles

Brianne you are so awesome and CRAZY!!!! I don't get how you don't train and then you still do so well. I sooooo want to do a triathalon, but the swim scares the begeebies out of me. Was this a mini? What were all the distances?

I LOVE this picture of Phoenixx. We went to Sunvalley and Jackson last week for work and did anything possible to keep him happy for the car ride. It was his best trip yet! I was quite grateful for baby einstien! We gave him all kinds of food that entertained him to say the least. He is now getting teeth on the top and will be walking any day! He has a new sound every week. His latest is he will stick his tongue out and blow when he wants us to be quite!!! LOL It cracks us up everytime!
