Tribal Sprint Triathlon

I woke up at 3:30am for an early triathlon which had a start time of 6:15--a 1 hour and 15 minute drive from my house. I'm not even close to being a fast swimmer or biker, but I love to run and I thought my goal for this race is not let anyone pass me on the run. I accomplished the goal. Not a soul passed and yes, there were still people behind me. I'll take the small accomplishments as I can get them. I really love the run course, as it is a lot of trail running, which you don't often find in a triathlon.

I hiked Squaw Peak tonight for the first time. It was step after step again. I also saw an old friend I grew up with who was in town. I ruined all the working out I did by eating Australian licorice in marionberry flavor. It tasted like my hometown of Puyallup, Washington when I used to buy berries on the side of the road. So I got a taste of Puyallup with a Puyallup friend. How sweet is that?
