I did it!


Today I participated in my first ever triathlon!  Even though I feel like that’s an accomplishment in itself, I think I’m more proud of the fact that I swam the Ural River.  Yes, the river that I’ve heard so many horrible things about – I got in and swam, and yes I even had a few gulps…. but  I’m sure I’ll live!

I had fun and I finished the race. That was important to me.

it’s the first one that they’ve organized here and it was done well.  I was happy to be a part of it!


getting ready to swim,  my daughter was a little worried – of course she’s heard of the river stories too!!


apparently I had a slow ‘transition’ – who knew it was all about transitions.


bike ride -


All done! – JJ who was a bit worried for me was happy that it was over!

Hi Francesca, the water was cold! I don't think I'd do it again.
