Thank you - The Coach for hauling us out there and standing in the rain to cheer. You are the best.
Thoughts - I love triathlons. I do not love half marathons. I can say this now that I tried it. I do not like feeling like am beat to hell all the time. I am not sure at this point if I will take this challenge on again, but who knows. There were definitely some pros to it along with the cons.
