last sunday we woke up before the sun to drive to El Dorado State Park for a triathlon.
for those of you who have not experienced race day,
the idea of getting up at 4:30am to go
swim 3/4 a mile,
bike 13 miles,
and run a 5K
probably sounds nuts.
but then you get to watch athletes of all ages and skill levels
push themselves physically and mentally,
and COMPETE against themselves and one another....
okay, you're right, it still sounds a little nuts.
but we do it anyway.
so apparently we're not the only crazies!
there are ALL kinds of people joining in on the
he came out of the water in 2nd place.
I love watching him swim!
then he transitioned to the bike.
he didn't feel great about his bike miles,
but it was windy and he is still figuring out all the ins & outs of his road bike.
look at that smile :) impressive.
he had quite the fan club for this race.
his dad, sister and niece were there along with my mom and grandma.
his smile has usually faded by the time he hits the run.
it's not his favorite,
but he still looks good doing it! ha.
sharing his medal with Melonie.
what a great uncle.
Good job, babe.
I'm always so impressed by your dedication to training
and your will to compete.
who knows, you might actually inspire me to join you sometime.
