She finished her first sprint triathlon last Saturday and in what I hear were less than stellar conditions no less. Actually I heard that, to quote Forrest Gump, there was "Little bitty stinging rain....and big 'ol fat rain. Rain that flew in sideways. And sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath." An Illinois summer storm *might* sour me on triathlon too. I remember how thrilled (*not*) I was after running the Soak City half marathon in the pouring rain.
So I salute you! Way to tough it out and do the damn thing!
