It was Scott's second time competing in the race, but the first to which he took all of us, and we had so much fun!! We were all very proud of him and it was great that he could give us the inside scoop after doing it once before.
Scott did great and beat his time by last year, both by going faster on the various legs, but also by strategizing his transitions. As you can tell by this shot - which shows only a tenth of the bikes and transition spots - it can be incredibly hard to pick out your bike and shoes in the sea of wheels!
The whole event was very family friendly, which made it easy for the kids and I to manage being spectators. But the real treat for the boys was playing in the sand by the lake (where the swim part was held) after the race.
Although the water was muddy during the race and hard to see through, the rest of the day it was an amazing, beautiful, clear blue. Such a gorgeous Father's Day!
