Last weekend in Dallas, Andrew had his first triathlon of the new season! He finished the swim, bike, and run in 4 hrs 58 minutes, which is a great time and personal record for him! He won his division and came in 10th overall. The triathlon he did included a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, followed by a 13.1 mile run (makes me tired just to watch all of them). Aside from a few blisters on the bottoms of his feet, he was feeling great after the race. In fact, he was already trying exercise again the next day! Here are a couple of videos and pictures from the race and trip.
This is the very beginning of the race. You can see him at first, then I lose him for a second, then he comes back into the picture:)
Alot of people ask about the transitions between events in the race. They come right out of the water, with their cycling clothes on under their wetsuit from the swim, and can just pull the wetsuit off and go. Some people bring along an extra shirt to pull on over their other clothes if it is a cool day, but most of the time they just keep the wet clothes on and "air dry" as they ride along.
Just a pic we took outside the hotel the night before the race.

We have loved these commercials ever since we first saw them! Nike's got a good marketing team...they get me every time! These definetly make me want to get up and do something. I love how they put regular people and kids in with the athletes in these!

Check out these awareness tests....Andrew got 36 seconds on this one, while I scored a sad sad 5 the first few times before getting a 13:)
This one is just great, let me know how you do on it, Drew and I both missed it!!
