long day

I had been looking forward to the annual Julie Williams Triathlon for months.  I was especially excited because I could actually participate.  I started running before TRX class, and going to one spin class a week.  Sadly, I never actually finished a spin class, but at least it was a step in the right direction.  The day of the race came.  I was pretty nervous.  Chad had done other races before, but it was a first for me.  I got me, my borrowed bike and helmet to the Y at the designated time.  Chad was on call the night before and had to meet me there.  About an hour and a half later, it was all over.  I didn't drown, and had crossed the finish line.  I didn't do quite as well as I had hoped, but now have a time to beat!
 We had to hustle home after the race.  Our annual King's Island trip also happened to be scheduled that day.
  Chad and I showered, got the babysitter home and headed out the door for a different sort of race.  We had an awesome day!  The weather great, the crowds were tolerable, and kids loved it!  
 We enjoyed the our fifty "beagle bucks" to the fullest, even though it was only enough for one game each and a couple of shared treats.  It is a good thing we got those perks through his work!
 Aimee's favorite ride was the carousel!  She loved that she got to ride with her baby!
Porter was all about the tummy ticklers!

After all the park had worn us all out, we headed back for the triathlon BBQ!  It was a big crazy day, but we had a blast!
