New Bathingsuit!

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?

OK, that is SOOO cool. I'm proud of you for just PLANNING on doing it! And the swim suit is adorable! That is an awesome goal, and the external motivation always works for me. In fact, just signed up to walk a 1/2 marathon in April! Now the hard part is getting someone to do it WITH me! Makes those 4 hours of walking more fun! :-)

Niamh, 1/2 marathon! AWESOME! I hope you find a walking buddy. Are you buying a new outfit for it?

Niamh said...

I have just lined up a walking buddy for the race! Probably not for many of the training-walks (our schedules don't align that well) but for the big day. Also, a friend from law school just told me she is seriously considering coming out from New York for the big day! :-) We were walking buddies in school, so that would be extra fun! I hadn't yet thought "new outfit," but CLEARLY new outfit is a genius idea! Now I just have to come up with a signature color... :-)
