Triathlon Trek

This weekend our daughter Marissa crossed the finish line at her first triathlon. A triathlon is a daunting task for anyone but as a Type 1 diabetic, it was an achievement of a lifetime for Marissa. As a health care provider, she is well aware of the potential for complications in Type 1 diabetics, so she exercises and trains all the time and her good health is a testament to God's faithfulness to her and her commitment to take care of her body. The swim was 800 meters, she then rode 25 miles on her bike and ran 5 miles.

Her husband, one of our other daughters and her husband, and my husband and me were her Encouragement Team. Once she pedaled off on her bike, we jumped in our car and traveled back roads so that we could be waiting around her half-way point to encourage her on. We had signs in tows and binoculars for scouting her arrival from afar.

These are some photos from the Triathlon. Congratulations, Maris!
