One of my “30 before 30” goals was to complete a triathlon, and I thought it would be a great incentive to get back in shape after Hudson was born. So even before he was born, I knew that I would be doing one at Moss Park on October 3. When I told Andrew my goal, he said that he would join me, which was great! We could train together and stay together during the race, and just push each other to do our best.
I started exercising regularly again when Hudson was about 3 months old, which gave me about 8 weeks to train for the tri. I never was able to complete all three (or even two) of the events back to back in my training, but I knew that if Andrew was with me, he would keep me accountable during the race and I would finish. We had no time goals. We just wanted to cross the finish line (and not be last). And we did it! We were 28 out of 35 and finished in just under two hours, but we did it!!
So in case you missed my Instagram posts, here are my pictures from the day.
