|Climbing out of the river, what a relief!|
|Jelly legs, need to run, don't feel like running.|
|Ok I guess I will run, on to T1.|
Another thing I liked about this race was that there was only one transition area and it was on grass. The people were also very friendly, I heard lots of "good job", "have a nice ride" and "doing awesome" from the other racers. The bike course left T1 and turned right out to some flat country roads, a head wind picked up slightly causing a little discomfort heading East but made turning West so much more enjoyable. Two laps completed the Olympic distance 29 mike bike.
|Dismounting the bike and running to T2.|
|Racking the bike, feeling good. It is always fun to hear Jonas shouting "go daddy".|
|Swapping bike shoes for running shoes, someday I might figure out how to transition faster here but|
it feels so good to sit for a few seconds.
|Stopping for a second to realize I have to run 6.2 miles.|
|Guess I better start running.|
|Staring at the finish line|
|Yes there was food at the end, another good reason to come all the way back.|
|Me, Kiera and Brian - our first Olympic distance.|
