Triathlon Pink

I can't believe I did it!

I slept in 2 hours past my alarm and despite my near nervous breakdown and numerous near death experiences on the drive to the venue- I did it!!
What a great feeling!! What a great day!!

Quick wrap up- Swim was easy peasy and over in 2 mins 30 secs.. Transition was quick and easy both times. The ride was hard and took me 15 mins to do 3 kms... so that's something I'd like to improve and my run took me about 10 mins I think.. I had bricks for legs!!

Oh my gosh! What an amazing lady Penny from HBC is!!! (pictured below) She came 11th overall and 1st in her age group... After she finished (she was crying from excitement and exhaustion etc) she ran back about 20 metres to sprint to the end with me so I could finish like a champion!! PENNY I LOVE YOU!!!

I came 22nd out of 57.
I can't wait till next years pink triathlon... who knows... just might have to go in a gatorade one!!

Well done Ash, I knew you could do it! You just can't put into words that amazing high you get when you've crossed that finish line......
