I was hired to be the photographer for the Triathamom. I have to tell you, it was so inspiring! There were so many women of different ages, stages, and fitness levels, and they DID it! I especially loved the kids cheering on the moms, and watching the dads take care of the kids. It was so sweet and brought a tear to my eye seeing the kids be so proud of their moms. This race is a very family friendly (and overall just friendly/non-competitive) race. While the moms were racing, they had bounce houses, and arts and crafts and face-painting to keep the kids busy. They really thought of everything.
It also touched upon something that I myself have been thinking of… Just because you’re a mom, and literally every living and breathing moment is devoted to your children that there is nothing left over for yourself, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t set a goal and do something amazing for yourself! I was so proud of these women, and perhaps one day I will join them!
