My mom’s first triathlon!

On Saturday I went to a place in Oslo called Sognsvann with my mom, my aunt and my mom’s friend. And we didn’t go there for no reason, oh no. We went there for my mom’s first ever triathlon! She has been training for it for a while now and the day was finally here. It was a Sprint distance triathlon, which means: 750 m swimming, 23 km cycling, 5 km running. We came early so she didn’t have to get too stressed out before the race, and so that we could watch some of the Olympic distance participants and cheer them up at the running part. It was pretty cool to have seen a triathlon, feel the energy, be surrounded by all these strong and sporty people. But the best thing to me was obviously to finally get to see my mom participate in a triathlon! I filmed a little here and there so I could make a little video of it, please take a look:

(ignore the time & date stamp in the right corner of the video, I forgot to set the right time & date in the camera)

Her official time was 1:37:59. I am extremely proud of her! October 2nd she’ll be doing her first Olympic distance triathlon in France and I am so excited to see how well she does in that one aswell.

Do you have a sporty mom, or ARE you maybe a sporty mom?
Have you ever participated in a triathlon?

  1. The goal is an IronMan 70.3 in 2018, I have to work a lot to reach. I hope you will support me all the way.
