Last Sunday after my swim, I ran off to the mall to pick up a new suit. It was a typical swimsuit angst experience complicated by the fact that the only one-piece that fit well made me look like a sackful of plums. In the end I decided on this wonderfully modest jog-bra with an old pair of running shorts. It worked great both times I swam this week and has the added attraction of being suited for a triathlon. :)
Which brings me to the Iron Girl of Aug 2009 which my friend agreed to do with me. The distances are 1k swim (I can do that now), 30K ride (18ish miles, I can do 3), 5K run (pretending I don't know about this part at the mo' since I'm combatting 3rd trimester knees.). I'm 28 weeks pregnant, but the race is 1+years away so I think I can make the train up, LOL.
I'm thinking of having shirts made that say "Triathamom--Marathon Mother/Sprint Triathlete." Isn't it fun to dream?
