PR Womens Triathalon

The weekend before Thanksgiving I had the chance to do a triathalon sprint. It was a 600 meter swim, 12.4 mile bike, and a 5k(3.2mile) run. It turned out to be quite the adventure. The swim went great but then it was onto the bike. Unfortunately, all that anyone had for me to borrow was an old mountain bike that we had to WD40 the chain before. ha ha (but thanks to Kandace for letting me borrow it!) I was pedaling so hard on my mountain bike while everyone on their nice road bikes zoomed by. I've learned there really is a big difference between the two! Another difference I learned is that mountain bikes aren't really made to be sat on like road bikes are. My poor behind was so sore by the end of my ride (and for the following week!). Then onto the run... lets just say I got lost... for about 10 minutes! Are you kidding me! Surprisingly, when I got lost I felt the urge to cry about it. What?! I didn't, but seriously, that's not really something I would normally feel like crying about! I knew something was up. I went home and did a little "research" and sure enough, 5 WEEKS PREGNANT.

Afton, up bright and early and still in her PJ's!

Me and my friend Julia who trained with me at the swimming pool. It was so nice to have someone to go with and switch-off watching each others kids while we swam.










While I was biking, poor afton was playing in the grass and started crying "HELP!" She had 11 ant bites on her foot and leg. The ants here are insane! The bites swell then turn into sores that last for like 2 weeks. poor girl.


And finishing... It probably wasn't my best race. ha ha But I finished and that was good enough!


And for the best part... Our little alien. Atleast that's what the baby looks like right now. We couldn't get a cute side profile in the last ultrasound so for all you people that just can't see, the face is on the right and the chest on the left. At my 13 week appointment they said it was looking like it might be a girl! Both Logan and I kinda felt like we'd have another girl next.... so we shall see. Either way we are very excited! Due date: July 28th, just before school starts for Logan on August 4th!

congrats on being pregnant! I am like 3 weeks ahead of you! I did a few of those sprint triathalons when Macee (my oldest) was about aftons age... They are so much fun...but I had the same experience with the whole mountain bike thing... But The next time I did one, I MADE SURE i borrowed a road bike... It makes ALL the difference in the world! I havent done any since, even though I would LOVE to.... Its just so much harder to train with 3 now! if you have another girl, you will love it, I felt the same exact way when I found out I was having a third girl... like what? seriously? but we love her to pieces... we are hoping for a boy this time though! :)

Heidi! You are killing me! I can't believe we talked for like 15 minutes about being pregnant the other day and you didn't tell me! Hope I didn't freak you out about Ashford if you were planning on going there. I'm so excited for you guys. It would be fun for Afton to have a sister to play with. Seriously can't believe you didn't say anything!!!!!

Yaaaay for having 2 girls (maybe)! I hope you do! I love how your girl's due date is the same as my baby's b-day!!!! Woo hoo! Great job with the tri btw. Hope Afton's poor little feet didn't hurt too bad! I love that Afton has to sleep with all her friends also! Ava does that too. So cute.
