It was painful, slow and awkward…


and exhilarating, inspiring and wonderful…

I finished my very first ever triathlon in 2 hours, 26 minutes and 12 seconds.

This is a horrible time.

But it is my time.

And I am proud of it.


About Sandie

A little background: A mother of 3, two boys and a girl. Married young to a good man. No longer young, but he is still a good man. Grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, lived several years in small town Alaska, spent a couple years in the city of Madison, currently residing not too far from down town Anchorage. Drink a crazy amount of coffee. Fiercely loyal to my friends. Truly rabid in my defense of family. Beyond thankful that my God loves me enough to allow me to doubt and question.
