Tryatri - and get healthier in the process!

I've "tried" a triathlon - and loved it! I got fit training for my first one in 2007 but then I let some of the weight come back. I dealt with mono most of 2008 but completed by second triathlon anyway. Now I hope to kick sickness and fatigue to the curb and get my rear in gear again!

Update: I've been dealing with thyroid issues and I am still trying to get those under control. No excuses however - I also need to get back on track with healthy eating and get back to the gym on a ...

Have you ever done the Average Joe Tri in Perham? You need to do that one sometime! The water is SO shallow...you can walk it!

LOL We do sound quite similar :) Must be the Minnesotan thing. I was originally from Minnesota and then just recently moved across the border to N. Dakota.

I think the series is called the Glacial Lakes series. It's put on by Pickle Events...I think. That's really cool that one of my friends is someone that you know. Is that Denise?

Thanks for the nice words about the marathon. I did the half in St. Cloud and then the full in Fargo. There is something to be said for rolling out of your own bed at the start line :) Fargo is a VERY flat marathon. I would really recommend it if you are looking for another marathon. Great Swag! The only downside is the weather. One year it snowed....one year it was cold...It's always windy.

Good luck with achieving your nutritional goals and stepping up your exercise!!!

Hi! Which tri did you do? I did the Castaway Club/Young Life Tri in Detroit Lakes last year. Your finish line photo looks like it was one of the events in that series. Congrats on doing it!
