Race in Photos

My friend Amanda was out at the race from 6 am to 4 pm, rooting me on at every turn and taking some fantastic photos. She really captured the day:

pre-race prayer
No wetsuit -- no problem
Off for the bike
my neck and back hurt after 56 miles
1800 bikes and gear
half-way through the run
finish line in sight
woo hoo
saving this medal forever

And the celebratory margarita:

Celebratory post-race margarita

And that is the last tri post for a while, I promise. Thank you again for all your kind words. Soon we will return to our previously scheduled crafting/cooking/political ranting.
