I got to do an OWS practice at Cowell Beach in Santa Cruz last Friday! We practiced the loop we will be swimming for Tri Santa Cruz!

I always feel like a black ant when I wear the wetsuit and black swim cap. Anyways, it was super nice to swim there (and there were no waves that were knocking us around, so that was a nice bonus).
What a great OWS!
Afterwards, we went for a ride around the Tri Santa Cruz biking loop, and I was relieved to find that the course is relatively easy (no big hills) and I think I’m ready to go for the Tri this weekend!
On Saturday, I woke up early and had the pleasure of running a 5K with my trail friend, Sarah!
This was her first ever race, and we decided on the Brazen Summer Breeze 5K (for its flat course and cool weather).
I was a semi-pacer… this was a benchmark race, so we weren’t really sure what a good 5K pace would be. We’ll figure a specific pace for next time 🙂
Goodness, it was so exciting to see Sarah run as hard as she could and finish strong at the very end!
Congrats to all the 5K, 10K, and half marathon finishers! (Ran into Eric during and after the race):
Right after the race, I went over to Campbell Community Park to spectate. Our church was participating in a volleyball tournament.
Check out my boyfriend and his mad hops:
I love spectating, and it was so great to watch our church members play hard out there!
I will be going down to Santa Cruz today to lead a workshop on health! Our church youth campers and counselors are there right now. I hope and pray that they are being filled and saturated with the Holy Spirit!
These are my little sisters:
And my beautiful siblings who are counseling and volunteering for the first time this year:
I miss them… they are going to become new creations, totally changed from the inside out!
Anything highlights to share from the weekend?
In a triathlon, what would be your weakest leg (swim/bike/run)? [Biking is my weakest leg for suresies]
