He did it!! He did it! Woo-hoo!! He's a bit tired now, but now as exhausted as I thought he would be. It has been a long, but exciting day. We were up the mountain at 6 am so that he could set up his transition stations (going from swim to bike, and bike to run). This is a picture of T1 (transition station 1).
The race started at 9:20 am. It was a great start, and luckily the water was warm - 71 degrees. I think it was warmer in the water than it was out.
Then off to bike up and over the mountains. This race course is almost all up hill (mountains) on trails!! He was quick on his bike, quicker that he anticipated, even with a flat towards the end. He was feeling pretty good when he started running. We don't have his official times yet, we'll post them when we get them. But he did great!! The entire race just barely over 4 hours!!! This is him crossing the finish line. . .PRICELESS!!
