As you read about earlier on the blog, Brandon raced his first triathlon without me at the end of July. However, that didn't mean I wasn't there ... I got to be a tri-sherpa!
Brandon already told the story; I'm just here with the photos.
At the race site the day prior. Notice the elevation.
Snake on the turf leading to the water.
Bowling pin target practice.
That small black tent? That's where the swim was.
From the swim start. The "Run Start" was also the swim finish. Yeah, a two minute walk.
On the other side of the fence.
Waiting to get into the water.
Gustave the tri dinosaur. Brandon's right behind him.
Triathletes on the shoreline.
And we're off!
Crawling over the rocks.
Coming out of the water.
Off to transition.
Getting ready to ride.
Off to go ride.
Best photo of Brandon EVER.
Back in trans.
On an ouchy foot coming down the very looooong trans area.
Rounding the corner into the finish.
Crossing the finish line.
