June was a busy month full of endurance activities. We started off the month with my first Sprint Triathlon. It was a 300 meter Swim, 12.5 mile bike ride, and a 3.1 mile run. I shockingly placed 4th in my age group. To say the least there were not a lot of people in my age group. I did another Triathlon in July and ran a 5k. It has been fun to train for these and it is something I never could have imagined I would enjoy and be able to accomplish. Colin placed second in his age group and second in the triathlon we did in July. He just finished his 4th Triathlon which was open water. He has also ran a couple of 5k's. He has had a busy year of training and is glad to be
getting into shape again.
The other exciting event we got to participate in was a 9.5 mile hike in Zions called the Subway. This involved climbing down steep rock hills, hiking through tons of water for hours, repeling off huge boulders, jumping into pools of water and then swimming through freezing cold water to get to the other side. It really was amazing! I told Colin this is probably the most intense and exciting thing I have ever done in my life. We went with Colin's sister Mckenzie, her husband Corbin (his sister and brother-in-law) Colin's other sister Jupe and her husband Nick and our brother-in-law Shane. It was a blast and it took us all day to complete the hike(about 9hrs).
