The thing that swims, bikes, and runs!
Daniel participated in his first triathlon today, and it was very exciting. He swam 1/2 mile, biked for 15 miles, and ran a 5k which is 3.1 miles, and did it all in about 1 hour and 43 minutes. That's my superman!
We aim to someday be a family with a wall covered in race numbers. I am determined to do a marathon someday, so I want to be able to at least one 5k, 10k and a half marathon before I get to my marathon. I've already signed up for my first 5k on September 10th! Daniel will be doing more events like this (he's trying to convince me to do a triathlon next year - ha!) and will be doing more bike races. We want to involve our future kids in these kinds of things so they can stay active, at least until they decide it's lame. What a fun future we have in store for us!
He finished it though, and with energy to spare! Now he has a full day of work to do, both at Man's Image and Pizza Hut. And he needs to write his talk for church tomorrow at some point.
A very exciting day in the Watkins home!
