The Second Tri

Rob completed his second triathlon this past Saturday.  To say I'm proud of him is an understatement.  

This was a sprint distance tri which means a:
-750 meter swim (1/2 mile)
-20K bike
-5K run

A friend from church, Matt, competed too and they both did great!! They started the swim right off of a spillway and my camera was at max zoom with our super zoom lens.  He's the one with his arms raised fixing his swim cap.  Matt was in the old man wave of contestants that was after Rob's.  Joke, joke, we're just really young. ;)

Just out of the water and running to the transition area to get on his bike.

She was with him in spirit.

During the bike section we had a lot of down time since the biking course was quite a ways from the finish area.  We kind of had to choose to take biking pics or pics of them running and finishing.  Lori had a blanket so they entertained Ella while Wyatt and I played soccer.  Ella had a preoccupation with Ms. Lori's empty coffee mug...

Just starting his 5K.  He ended up running 7 minute miles!

Mr. Matt hi-fiving Jillian.

Rob came in somewhere in the 60's out of 295!

The victor.

Woot-woot!  I think Matt was 69th?

 Colette and the kids came out to see the guys finish and brought warm donuts right out of the oven!

Way to go honey, we're so proud of you!
