We did it!
(Missing our eldest son...maybe next year) :)
First transition - K just finished the bike and J is waiting to get the chip on her left leg before she goes off for the run.
J coming by the transition zone during her first of three legs!
J did a great job and then the chip was passed to her bf who was supposed to do the skating portion. However, Québec City has had some exceptionally warm weather the last few days and the ice was too soft. So, his leg was replaced with a shorter snowshoeing leg (3K). This was his first time ever on snowshoes, but he did great...even if he would have enjoyed skating more!
Next was my husband and the cc skiing segment...still smiling after his first leg (3 to go)
Last, but not least :) The snowshoe segment, here I am coming through on my first of three laps. Smiling as my crew cheers me on!
I ran a total of 4.5K on VERY hilly terrain. But, including the transition, it took me 36m35s. So, I'm very pleased with my time.
Enjoying a celebratory dinner after the race!
It was a great experience and perhaps we'll do it again next year...with a little more training :)
Running continues to go well...I decided to enter the Run Every Day in March Challenge. So far, so good! Today, once we got home from Québec City, my daughter and I went for her long run together. We ran 14km and it was her longest distance to date. I am so proud of her...she is doing a great job with her training. It was so nice to run with her today...we don't often get the chance!
