Set Your Goals!

This is us Becca on the left and me, Shannon on the right.  Not our best look, we would much rather be seen as fashionable, hot moms but this picture means so much more then meets the eye!  becca and shannon

We are cousins and I’ve looked up to Becca since I can remember.  Becca is two years older then me and I’ve always thought of her as a sister.  Our lives are full of crazy stories and many highs and lows which we plan on sharing as we journal our story, but back to this picture.  It all started with a dream.

Becca’s husband and brother have done a ‘kind-of’ team triathlon for the past several years that consists of a 1 mile sprint, a 1.5 mile canoe, a 14 mile bike ride, and finishes with a 5k.  It all started with a challenge from the boys that we could never beat them.  So we signed up and we began to train.

We put in the work, we sprinted, we ran far, we lifted weights, and even borrowed friends bikes since we both haven’t rode bikes since elementary school!  We started out slow but we got stronger and faster quicker then we ever thought possible and it was time to beat the boys!

This is the day that two moms in their mid 30’s came in second place for the female teams.  The boys only beat us by a couple minutes but you could tell they were scared and probably would have rather died on the course then get beat by us!  The moral of this story is focus on your dream, do the work, and I promise you will have success!

With Love, Shannon
