My lovely Pharmie raced a sprint triathlon yesterday in Albert Lea. As I noted in my last post, I was going to come along and cheer, but take the weekend off from racing just to let my heel rest after last weekend's 1:20 half marathon - it was a little achy all week.
Transition in the distance.
Pharmie talking with the race director Mark.
Standing around COLD pre-race.
Staying warm or peeing? You decide.

The men took off!
The ladies followed 3 minutes later.

Local tri-hunk Sam Janicki was first out of the water.
He held on to that lead then entire race and took the win.
"Tall nice-kid Kyle" was in the lead pack, and he held on for 2nd overall!
Soon, Pharmie came busting out of the water:
My wife and her guns.
Starting the ride with a smile!
Old high-school buddy Tim finishing the ride!
Pharmie running back in to rack her bike!
Pharmie in the distance, mist in the air.
Running towards the finish with a smile!
I think that's the race director's son JAMMING out to the finish line music as my wife finishes! Awesome!
She wasn't sure about doing the race as we were driving to the race after leaving Henry at Grandma's house, but she was all smiles and happy that she did it on the way home! :)
