Did I mention that Gramps, Tina, and Julie participated in a triathlon?
Diana made a surprise visit to help cheer the athletes on. I was plenty glad she was there to help with the photographs! Here are a few from that great day.
Awaiting the start.
They started with a 1/4 mile swim.
The swim part was particularly hazardous! Between shells and barnacles it was bad for feet. I saw plenty of folks at the first aide bus getting treated for cut feet! Our team – Lund all had lacerations to deal with, too.
Biking was next. Gramps had trained on a bike he borrowed from Christine.
The helmet was something Kate and Patrick were going to put in their yard sale before they moved to NC. I snagged it. Since it was available, Gramps gave it a try.
The fans wait patiently for the bikers to pass by.
Julie coming in from the bike portion with only the run left in the race.
After Tina finished she went back and helped Gramps with the final yards of the race.
A photo finish.
I expected to find the athletes in the pool after the race. Perhaps the pool was already full. 😉
Good job everyone! I admire your drive and abilities! Vundabah!
