Here we go again

I think we must be crazy because we are attempting to do the St. George triathlon AGAIN this Saturday. The past two times we have tried, it has been nothing but trouble. Fun, yes. But we've never actually gotten to do the race. But Matt insisted on trying again...he says the third time's the charm...so we are going. And, we got in for only $15 thanks to my Dad's neighbor. Yay for discounts!

So I'm taking guesses on my final finishing time again. Just for fun. I'm doing the sprint distance, which is a 1/2 mile swim, 12 mile bike, and 3 mile run. Matt is doing the Olympic distance, which is twice what I am doing. So feel free to guess a time for both of us!

P.S. Please pray that we won't have any mishaps this time.

I sure wish we were all coming down with you guys this time. Minus the actual triathalon in the past the trips have been so much fun. Good luck and I'm gonna say on your time 1 hr 57 min. However I know you can blow that time out of the water. Do great!

I think Matt had something with his theory, and I'm saying it will go just fine this time BECAUSE everyone isn't coming down. I say 1 hour 48 minutes.

I say you're both nuts. I wish you both the best, but if either of you need stitches after this one, I wash my hands of you both!

But good luck! My guess is 2 hours 3 minutes.

For Christy, I say 1:47:33. For Matt, I have no clue, how about 2:43:22. That sounds good. But I have no idea what Matt might be up for, especially since he seems to have a problem with staying on his bike in St. George. Good Luck to both of you! And be safe and finish.

It was fun meeting you and having dinner with you guys. Hopefully, the triathlon went well with no mishaps this time!
