So, I spent about six weeks preparing for the Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon. In the last week, George got run over by a truck while on his bike.
So, that's the real lesson of my "how not to prepare." Don't let your husband get run over by a truck!
He was in a great deal of pain, so there was no way for him to help. We were so lucky, because we had friends who were willing to take care of the boys so that I could race. They all had a blast!
My race ended up going really well. The whole week leading in had been so stressful, that I just enjoyed the time to focus on myself and my race.
I didn't wear a watch or anything, so I didn't know that I was really close to breaking three hours. Had I worn a watch, I probably would have pushed a little bit more in the end!
