As I mentioned in Saturday's post, I was still much too injured to race. I couldn't even run 3 steps without major foot/ankle pain. Here's a reminder of what it looked like 2 weeks ago:
Ready to race!
Just the normal transition stuff: shirt, run shoes, bike shoes, water bottle,
and a big tan "belly band" to help hold up our baby.
From my Instagram: "Pregnant Pharmie about to start the Indoor Tri!!"
A few seconds after the start.
Mama and baby putting on a shirt in T1!
Did I mention she was the FIRST IN HER WAVE TO GET ON A BIKE?!?! Rockstar.
Pharmie's joked that in BOTH of her recent indoor tris, NO ONE has wanted to bike
next to the pregnant woman! She's all by her lonesome to the far left.
Henry in his track suit (yes, we planned that) stealing some of Mama's water.
Running! She was doing the "mini sprint" which had a 1 mile run (8 laps).
About half way into the run, Henry missed his high five with Mama... (continued...)
... so Mama stopped and backed up to make sure he got his high five! Precious seconds were wasted.
Anne introduced herself to me pre-race - she's a blog reader. NICE WORK, ANNE!
And nice to meet you!
Pharmie leading a group (including Anne) around the track.
From my Instagram: "Last lap at the Indoor Tri!!!"
Obligatory hitting-your-watch-at-the-finish-line photo.
A hug for Mama just after she finished.
Off to the goodie table to get a snack.
Pharmie (post-race) and a co-worker who was about to start in the next wave.
Henry zonked out on the way home with Mama's finisher's medal around his neck
(that's the orange ribbon).
