I Survived JAWS!



Yay! I didn't get eaten by any sharks this weekend during my triathlon! I was seriously so scared to do the swim in the ocean. I kept picturing my self diving though a wave straight into a sharks mouth. Shark week on the discovery channel really didn't help! The triathlon was seriously so much fun! I will never run another marathon after doing a tri. If any of yourunners are sick of the same training everyday, train for a triathlon...I highly recommend it! I trained with a friend of mine and we did the race together, it was so great to have a training partner. We made a weekend out of it and went totheSan Diego zoo after the race with our hubbies since we were fairly close by ( thanks for the annual passes Kyle & Jenny, we'll pose as you anytime). The zoo was cool, but I definately don't recommend walking around the hot zoo after any kind of strenous physical activity...I looked and felt like death. Plus the fact that I'm not a huge animal lover didn't really help my wanting to be there. I just think most of the animals at the zoo are so stinky & ugly, it's so over rated.(well to me at least) Yea, you definately will never find me rallying for P.E.T.A. Then my college roommate of all 4 glorious years at EWU, was in LA for a wedding so Andy & I got to meet up with her and her hubby! It was so fun to see her, she's is like a sister to me. I love ya Beth!

Good Job Jen! I am so Proud of you! There is nothing like a Tri, I need to start training for another one! I don't know if I would be brave enough for an Ocean swim. I will stick to pools and Nasty Tempe town lake!

You are such an amazing athelete. I wish that I had the energy and drive that you have. Good job on completing the race. There is no way I would have swam that far in the ocean. I am glad you got to see Wes and Beth. I wish Joel and I could have been there too. Maybe next time.
We miss you both.

Congrats, Jen! I didn't even know you were training for a triathalon. How in the world do you find time to do everything you do? You're inspiring.

Hey, tell Andy that your blog is not listed on the side of ours because those are only the private blogs we check. All other blogs (including yours) we check using Reader. If he'd read the title of that list he would know that. . . .

Hope all is well!

How fun!! I've been wanting to do a tri really bad but the swimming part kinka freaks me out. I could swim doggie paddle if that's allowed.

We are living in Gilbert now. Jared transferred to ASU. It is nice to be back in AZ.

That is so great Jen, I am totally jealous. I have been wanting to train for a tri for the last few years, but with school and the three youngsters it has been a little difficult. It is still on my list of things to do :) You are so inspiring. I love ya cuz!!
