The Joanna's Loves Triathalon

This week's Mondays in Love is historic. A first. Are you ready for this?

I'm hosting my first triathalon. That's right. Right here.

On Facebook I recently posted, jokingly, that I'd like to do a triathalon comprised of running, yoga, and baking in that order. Enough people shared my enthusiasm that I thought, what the hell? Why not? Let's do it! 

So that's what we're doing! Here are the ground rules:
  1. You must complete all three activities (running, yoga, and baking) yourself. No team "racing". 
  2. Since this is the Joanna's Loves Triathalon, I'll hold it over Valentine's Day weekend, February 15-17. You have all weekend to complete the three activities. 
  3. Once you've completed the events, post a comment on THIS POST telling me how it went. Also, feel free to send pictures to I'll pick a few and post them. Entries must be posted by Sunday, February 17 @ 9pm CST.
  4. I will select winners based on quality of recap/pictures sent and will send prizes. The prizes will be really modest since I'm buying them myself (think GU stash, socks, or some similar thing), but there WILL be prizes!
Who's in? C'mon, you know you want to. This is going to rock.

Can I walk my running portion? I'm thinking 27 weeks gestation is probably not the best time to take up a running habit. :) Maybe I can encourage John although I may lose him on the yoga. He would probably be in for the other 2 activities!

That sounds more like my kind of triathlon, no swimming!

What a FUN idea! I think it is so neat that you are doing this and I hope to take part.

Impossible triathlon for me. I have never done a session of yoga; baking... yes I can... but only to survive; running almost impossible now, only jogging.
However I will follow with interest this "race".
Good luck to the participants.
