Bummer news!

This post is supposed to be about how awesome I did in my triathlon. Unfortunately, I wasn't even able to do it. All last week I was feeling dizzy and lightheaded. It kept getting worse and worse. By Thursday morning I was barely able to stand up and get ready. My hands were shaky and vision was kinda hazy. I tried to get out of the house and run some errands but by the time I got in the car and started driving I felt worse. I went to the walk-in and, of course, they wouldn't even see me. They told me I needed to go the ER. Ugh! So I packed Zoe back up and went to the hospital.

They ran a bunch of tests and determined that I had severe dehydration. I felt a bit better after they pumped 2 bags of fluid into me, but still felt yucky. I think the worst part was knowing how close I had gotten to my goal of completing a triathlon. All that hard work and this is what happens... Well, I'm sure you guessed it. I didn't get to compete after all.

If my body allows, I will definitely be competing in not just one but a few next year.
Wish me luck!!

That is a total bummer. I would have been really disappointed. Maybe next year though!

Sorry, girl! There's always next time, and at least you got to enjoy (that might not be the right word for it...haha) the training! I'm glad you're ok...take it easy and know you'll always have cheerleaders rootin' you on no matter what you do in life!
