Our first weekend back in Provo
we were greeted by thunderstorms
and a really long triathlon
Steve and his Dad competed in the Utah Half Iron Man at Utah Lake.
It was so fun watching them race!
We started out by waking up way too early to go down and set up.
notice I use the term "we" very loosely, again, the only athleticism exhibited by yours truly was an unnaturally loud voice (it took a lot of training to get my windpipes to perform like that ok?)
Not that Steve minded. I think he woke up a total of seven times the night before the race. Just like a little kid on Christmas Eve. Who knew pushing your body to the limit would be something to look forward to?
They started out with the swim
Steve's the one in the orange swim cap up in the front, can you see him?
No, not the one closest to the camera, the one at the front of the pack. First row, third from the left.
See him now?
and there he is crossing the finish line!
me with my tired man!
After a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13 mile run...
you'd be tired too...
or if you're like me you'd be dead.
Unfortunately after a wrong turn during the bike ride his Dad wasn't able to finish, but Steve was glad to see him at the finish line!
Steve wearing his medal!
I'm so proud of all your hard work babe!
You're my hero!
