JOY-ANNA Duggar competed and finished a triathlon featuring “13 miles of biking and a 5K run.”
The former reality star shared her accomplishment with a series of photos on social media.
The 23-year-old took to Instagram to post various pic from the competition, including one of her posing with her hair up.
In the other snaps, Joy-Anna is in the midst of bicycling, running, and even preparing to go for a swim.
The Counting On alum wrote in the lengthy caption: “I’ve been training for this triathlon for the past few months and got to see all of my hard work pay off today!
“I’ve realized that I tend to put myself in a box, thinking ‘I could never do that, only athletic people can accomplish that,’ etc… but, it is incredible what some determination, encouragement and setting goals can do.”
She continued: “I’m amazed at what the human body is capable of… just a few months ago I couldn’t even swim forward in a pool and was wore out after running for 1 min and here I am doing a triathlon!!”
Joy-Anna added: “Thank you, Rachael, Alora, & Adeline for the hours of workouts and motivation!
“So thankful I was able to cross the finish line with two of my awesome nieces!”
She then concluded: “400 meter swim, 13 miles of biking and a 5K run.”
Plenty of her family members shared positive reactions in the comments section, as her sister Jana wrote: “Way to go, Joy!!! You inspire me!”
Her older sister Jill chimed in: “Yay! You go girl! Inspiring!” while her brother-in-law Jeremy Vuolo added, “Joy, you’re a champion!”
TRYING NEW THINGS
The ex TV star has been doing a lot of new things lately – she even dyed her hair for the first time.
Joy-Anna, who shares two kids with her husband Austin Forsyth, took to Instagram in August and showed off her brand-new hairstyle including highlights.
She even shared a clip for fans and did a twirl for the camera as she flaunted her stunning long waves with light caramel highlights.
BREAKING THE RULES
Joy-Anna has also been defying her parents’ Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s strict dress code and rules on modesty.
During a trip to Nashville, the mother of two showed off her figure in a skin-tight black skirt.
She also turned heads when she was spotted wearing a pair of short shorts while on a golf trip with Austin.
The women in the Duggar family have been urged not to show their arms or legs or wear revealing styles for years.
The controversial family have also been told to avoid birth control, use parental chaperones while they go on dates prior to being married, and enforce homeschooling.
