Another Triathlon!

John did the Provo triathlon this last weekend. He was awesome!
John and his friend Chan have been training together by swimming at 5 in the morning 3 times a week and by biking and running. It was fun to watch them both.
Here's the leftovers from our first salad that came straight from our garden.
We all enjoyed it - especially since we grew it ourselves.

John accomplished the Salem Triathalon today! We're so proud of him! He did much better with the swim than he thought he would.

Maybe the triathalon should have been titled a dyathalon because biking was eliminated from the race due to the rain (supposedly it creates dangerous riding conditions on the road).

We're proud of him anyway!

Here's the group of tri-athletes getting ready to begin the race.

PS I felt motivated by all these men and women who have trained long and hard to take part in such a challenging event. I almost felt the desire to complete one - just so could have accomplished such a thing in this lifetime. But then I realized....I've done 4 of my own kind of "triathalons"!

Only, mine doesn't consist of 5K runs or 500 meter swims...oh no, mine is 9 months long and the hardest stretch of the "race" comes at the end. I accomplish this challenge without any energy booster packs, wet suits, or a full body massage and treats after crossing the finish line.

Such are the challenges I train for and accomplish and I do one about every 2 or 3 years!

I'm impressed. :)
