Not even dead!

Triumphant, even! I did the run leg without walking, which was my goal.

Hooray! Go you! I hope you are not as sunburned as you look :)

Oh, TOTALLY. I thought of you, since I did most of the run leg with my eyes closed (it was flat, and I peeked every 5 or 10 seconds to make sure I was still going in a straight line).

OK, I've got to know why one would want to run with one's eyes closed, out of choice.

It feels amazing, as it turns out! My ankle was hurting, at first, and I got a stitch in my side so it was hard to breathe. But I'd vowed I would run the leg without stopping, so I just closed my eyes and -- I don't know! Suddenly I was nothing but my own internal world. It was pretty amazing, and I think it did wonders for my form. (My ankle also stopped hurting, and I was breathing more properly so I got no more side cramps.)

Oooh, I'm not sure I would have thought of that! I often find closing my eyes is calming, but I also often find that I feel very self-conscious of closing my eyes in a situation where it's not socially "approved". But I suppose everyone was running the same way, so it's not like someone would particularly notice!

Were you nervous about small, unseen obstacles, like rocks or I-don't-know-what?

Way to go!

I like your similar-yet-different "before" and "after" pictures.

Thank you! I feel much better in the "after" picture. :)


You look exuberantly tired.

I am! I really am. Was. Am. Something.


That's a really lovely picture.

Thank you! That's me lying next to my bike, with someone else's towel by my head and a medal around my neck and the sun that had just come out shining in my face. It was a good feeling.

Congratulations! You're so awesome!
I love the way you look in that picture, and continue to be impressed by you and your triathlons.

Woo congrats! (I'm sorry I wasn't able to make the island this morning

Congratulations, you look so blissed out.
