Color Me Proud

Thomas completed his first triathlon, the ICE Breaker Triathlon at Granite Bay, CA, on Sunday. He's written a great post about the first part on his blog, Triathlon For TK, but I had the camera and he's out of town, so I'm going to scoop him on the photos.

The place was already a hive of activity well before the girls and I arrived at 8:00 (and only for Thomas would I be up, bathed, dressed, packed and on the road by 7:30 in the morning. If that's not love . . . :)

Getting ready for the swim . . .

which was 1/3 mile from the transition area (uncounted in the official run, of course):

In the transition area, getting ready for the bike ride:

Hannah waited patiently:

Ready to run!

Just 100 yards from the finish! Go, Thomas, go!

And now he's officially a triathlete!

Thanks for the write up, and thank you again for all your support during the months of training and the day of the event. I couldn't have done it without you.

now how much will it cost me to have you take the pictures down? :^)
