She Rox Tri - Sprinting to the Finish Line
I am in a word, elated. Surprisingly, I am not exhausted. I think I still have so much adrenaline pumping through me that I'm really keyed up from the whole incredibly emotional day that was the She Rox Triathlon. I finished in under 3 hours. I swam slowly, not well, in the Schuylkill River; biked fast for the 15 mile ride; as for the run, I power walked most of it, with occasional jog and run bursts, until the last few yards when something kicked in and I sprinted to the finish line. Liz took this video as I am finishing. It totally encapsulates the whole experience and my elation and emotional joy as I crossed the finish line. When I can put my thoughts together in a more cognitive fashion, I will write more about the experience. I'm so happy I did this event, that I finished it, and that I want to do it again next year! As corny as the slogans are, I totally agree - She Swims, She Bikes, She Runs - SHE ROX! Enjoy the video while I go and collapse!
