Pre-Race Swim and Pasta!!

>> Saturday, July 25, 2009

Pharmie and I just kicked out Trent, Evan, Hannah, and Sarah after they enjoyed a great pasta meal! They all came over around 3, we headed up to Chisago City to hear a “course talk,” picked up our packets, and tested Chisago Lake.

Quick course talk

Sarah, Trent, me, Evan, and Hannah pre-swim

Headed in
(you can see the “short course” buoys)

Post swim

“ let’s take an awkward one!”

Evan, Sarah, Hannah, Trent, and Pharmie eating pasta

Homemade pasta, watermelon, and garlic toast
(as well as Sarah’s finger - weirdo.)

We also looked at all the comments you all left on Friday’s post. They LOVED hearing what you had to say! They especially loved to see that 2 pro triathletes (Linsey Corbin and Bree Wee) left words of advice and encouragement! Thank you ALL for your thoughts, comments, and happy words of encouragement for these 4 soon-to-be triathletes!

I really enjoyed Jim’s comment that wraps up the attitude I’m trying to impart on these 4: “Question: What do you call the person that finishes last in a Triathlon? Answer: A Triathlete!”

I hope to be back tomorrow evening with a quick post that starts with “They all did it!!” Wish them luck!

I'm sure they'll all finish and finish well.

Can't wait to read about it.

The triathlete who did finish last. Twice. And loved every minute of it.

I think that Trent won in having the most awkward pose.
