Trekking through life: Faith, family, friends and a whole lot of coffee!

Triathlon: An insane “fun” June 13, 2013

Sunday was Hubby’s birthday.  44.  He’s about to switch age brackets….next year!!!  So he decided to celebrate his awesomeness and begin his Triathlon season on his birthday.  All those hours of training….paid off.  Here’s some deets:

1/4 mile swim

10 mile bike

3 mile run

He was 4th in his age group, 22nd overall and finished in an hour!!!  My hottie rocked it.  So proud of him.  He has a couple more planned for this summer and some ideas of how to speed up his transitions, but mainly, for him he just enjoys the competition. (I enjoy the sunrise and the coffee!!!)

Here’s some photos from the morning off my iPhone…but look out people, my REAL camera is fixed and will be fully functional and in action for the next one!  Boo Ya!!!
