Triathalon Woman


Yeah, I did it. I just finished my first sprint triathalon last Saturday. I am now addicted. It took me 2 hours and eleven minutes. I beat 6 woman and 5 men, out of about 300. Natually, that is not very good in placing, but I wasn't last, I finished and I didn't even have to crawl or be carried across the finish line. After all the working out over the last year, I was thinking I looked pretty good. Until I saw the pictures. Spandex is not my friend. So this is why you get a picture of me on my bike from a distance. I thought maybe, you wouldn't want to be scarred for life by the image. I am eager to do several more sprint triathalons, and do the Smith Mountain Lake one again to beat my own time. Hopefully Paul can do is one with me next time. I also have begun to enjoy biking. I am going to start going out on Saturday mornings for a 21 mile ride. Yes, I will become one of those biker pedestrians that everyone hates. I promise not to wear spandex or people will crash on the road!

We hear it is illegal for men to tickle women in Virginia. Is this law true?
