Morgan's First Sprint.....


This photo was taken from my phone at 5:30am so bare with me here.
This past weekend was super fun for us. We went to San Diego so Morgan could compete in her first full size sprint triathlon. Morgan was super nervous about the distance so Dan's sister did the buddy wave with her and encouraged Morgan the entire way.
They swam a 1/2 mile ocean swim, a 12 mile bike and a 3.1 mile run!!
Morgan said about half way out on the swim she had an anxiety attack about how far she was from shore and what could be in the water. Suzanne helped her snap out of it and a life guard on a board also encouraged her so she said even though she still struggled she knew she could finish.

This was the SheRox all women tri to raise money for ovarian cancer research. So it was really fun to see all the women out there getting fit together. They even had a survivors wave of the race which was cool. Morgan was the youngest athlete doing the long distance wave and so she won everyone over. The announcer was talking about how young she was and cheering her on and all the women on the race were giving her words of encouragement for fighting to the end. The grin on her face when she completed was so sweet. She was so proud of herself. I was a nervous wreck the entire time. LOL! Needless to say she was starving and super sore. We prayed over her and I encouraged her to have a joyful heart and attitude even when it got hard. She totally did! :) When we got home Dan went on line and donated money in honor of Morgan finishing her race to the little girl Winter's foundation that Morgan supports. She wears her race gear and we told her every time she finishes a race we would give money to this little girl who's dad died of prostate cancer a few years ago. Winter races to earn money for awareness and research. So good clean family fun all around. Thanks for racing with her Suzanne, it meant a lot to Morgan to have the support. That officially closes tri season for our family. Wheeeeew....no more 4am wake up calls to stand on the beach.....until next year that is. :)
