This is NOT sunset, folks. It's the other one. You have to get up very early to be a good triathlon spectator!
Here's Luke, hydrating and getting his game face on for the camera.
This is Luke's wave of athletes starting their swim. And here's Luke finishing the swim and running out of the water (and up a HUGE-- I'm not kidding-- HUGE sandy hill to his bike in the transition area!)Ellie had her own idea about triathlon. You notice she paces herself for the swim...
...but really kicks it into high gear for the run
Having left everything out on the course, she waits with thumb and puppy for Daddy to finish his race.I didn't get any pictures of Luke during the bike portion because he was just too fast! He finished the run strong, up yet another sandy hill to the finish line.
As Ellie would say, "Go Daddy go!" Yay Luke!
