Fantastic Finish Photo Friday

Welcome to another edition of Fantastic Finish Photo Friday. We want to bask in your awesomeness from your finish photos. A finish photo captures a moment in time, where you overcame the challenges of the race and training, and reached your goal. The feeling of elation as you cross the line is what keeps us pushing our own limits. Please consider sharing your own photo to inspire others who are working toward their own finish.

This week’s photo is from Jim Barke:

Jim's First Triathlon Finish
Jim’s First Triathlon Finish
Here is a picture of me finishing my first triathlon.
The journey to be a triathlete began two years ago while I was cheering my kids on in their swimming lessons.  As they progressed I quickly realized that it was time for me to put my lifelong fear of water behind me.  I began with basic group swimming lessons, private lessons and everything in between.  I was ready to give up about six months ago.  Then something started to click and family, friends and others encourage me to continue.  This long journey was tough but I am so glad that I finished the Chaska Triathlon and will be doing my second one in September. 
Hear more about Jim’s first triathlon here on Jim’s blog.
Awesome photo Jim. Overcoming your fear of water must have been no easy task, but you persisted and made it to the finish line. Best of luck on your second race.

Do you have a photo you would like to share? Don’t be shy, send it to, Please add a quick paragraph of what the photo means to you. Please share and be an inspiration to others.
