((Warning: LOTS of pictures!!! Hope you feel like you were there with us--minus the cold weather and drizzly rain at the end!!))
Here he is...the triathlete!!!! Sunday morning, bright and early, Justin was able to do his triathlon. All weekend, the weather was awful, and the forecasts said there was going to be nothing but rain all morning on Sunday. But, our prayers worked, and the rain stayed away!!!
Justin had to be there at 5:45 to get set up, and his cheering squad arrived at 6:45 and found him warming up in the pool. Isn't he handsome?!
Our friend Harry also did the race with Justin. Here they are hanging getting themselves ready to start!
There they go!
I tried to get an up close picture right before he started, but it didn't quite turn our right!! Oops!=)
End of lap number one in the pool--he had to swim 12 laps, or 300 meters.
Here are Justin and Harry...they were number 184 and 186, so after Justin passed the guy between them, they were close together pretty much the rest of the race!
Catching a breath on the way to transition...
Here goes Harry too...
Just the start of a 14.8 mile ride. It was originally supposed to be a little over 15, but because of all the rain, the road I posted about on the last post did wash out, and they had to re-route it that morning.
Here is the cheering squad...literally. I think we were some of the only ones really cheering!! Oh well--we're proud of our guy!!
There they go!
FINISHED!!!! 1 hour 42 minutes--pretty amazing for his very first triathlon!!!
He's a little bit tired, but super happy!The triathletes
