Ironman/Penticton Update...

Didn't blog right after the race, but here is the update (finally!).

Picture of our car using Crayola Window Markers. It worked out great, except when it started to rain up at Yellow Lakes. Then the colours ran and the rear windshield wiper wiped parts of it off.

Me and the boys waiting for daddy up at Yellow Lakes. A really good spot to see the athletes as it is the last big climb on the bike route.

Hubby on the last stretch of the run. Yippee! You're an Ironman!!!

Our friend, Curt, going out for his run. Way to go! You're an Ironman, too!!!

Hubby did 11:14:07 and Curt did 15:48:37. Considering the conditions, it was a good race. Now hubby's looking at 2012. We'll see....

Go Ironman Triathletes!!

This is it! Today is Ironman Canada. My husband trained during the last year for this. What is Ironman, you ask? It's a triathlon consisting of 3.8 km (2.4 mi) swim, 180 km (112 mi) bike, and a 42.2 km (26.2 mi) run, one right after the other. You have 17 hours to complete the race, starting at 7am until 12am. Ironman Canada is in Penticton, BC. It's beautiful out here. Kids and I are ready to go see Daddy out at Yellow Lakes. The last tough climb on the bike route before they head back into town for the run. Results and pictures will be posted next.
