the finish line

David did a half Ironman Triathlon this weekend. You heard me - my baby is hardcore! If you're not familiar with that athletic competition distances, a half Ironman is a 1.2 mile swim (in Tempe Town Lake - yuck!) then a 56 mile bike ride and then a 13.1 mile run (which is half a marathon). I am really proud of all his hard work. Even though he had two flat tires, he still had a good time and feels like he did a good job meeting his goals. It was fun going down there and cheering on all the competitors. David really enjoyed training for this and challenging himself with such a hard competition. I think he deserves a good night's rest and an epsom salt bath! Maybe even a foot rub...
finishing the last leg.
with his friend, Buddy, who convinced David to do the race with him.
