Cinco de Mayo

This is how Erin does Cinco de Mayo

May 5 was the Polar Bear Pink Cheeks Triathlon.  It is a backwards triathlon, but if you can swim a 900 in under 20 minutes, you can buy an early swim time.  I swam at 8:40 and was able to go back to the hotel and shower and get dressed before the rest of the race at 11:00.  I am happy with my swim time (13:06) especially for not swimming for the last 6 months.  It put me 6 out of 96 and second in my age group.

My run went well.  There were lots of hills.

My bike was not great.  Lots more hills and on a new bike.  I just wasn’t as prepared as I wish I had been, but since we still have snow here, there haven’t been many opportunities to ride.

Nolan just finished the wrestling season.  He just can’t seem to find it in him to fight with people other than his brothers.  He usually ends up like this:

We had probably the best winter ever since we moved here and we have lots of pictures to show for it.  I’m going through them.  (I know, you’re thinking “promises, promises, Erin.”)

Yay for a blog post! Halle is the same with soccer as Nolan is with wrestling - she just won't be agressive in getting the ball and so she just mostly stands in the background. I didn't know they had wrestling for kids that little, but he looks adorable in his wrestling gear.
