  • Semper Tri 2018


    Eager to get back in shape, I signed up for the Semper Tri Triathalon at Camp Pendleton. I started training about two months before the race began, running with my three kids, two in the stroller and one on his balance bike, and spending lots of time at the community swimming pool. My objective for this race was just to finish, and I succeeded! I finished the race in 2:07. It was a 500 meter swim, 30K bike ride, and 5k run.
