So I left off in my Waseca Triathlon race report just after I had finished. I ran back to just before the finish line to cheer on the others. This was the first thing I saw:
My mother-in-law hanging out with 11-week old Charlie!
I was shouting "GO MATT! He's gaining on you!"
Then I saw the gym shorts and realized he was a relay runner. Sorry for the scare, Matt.
In the meantime, Justin and his family were heading home. Justin did the Lake Marion Tri with me a few times, and his wife is a college friend of my wife. He finished just behind Lilla for 4th in our age group (and he out-biked me!). Here they are leaving with his train of 4 boys:
Kelly pushing the youngest, then Justin, then 3 more boys in green, orange, and yellow!
(Except for the guy in gray. He didn't find it funny. He finds nothing funny.)
Pharmie coming back!
The long run back to T2.
Angela (Matt's fiancee) was just behind Pharmie!
(Angela started 6 minutes behind Pharmie, but had a 3 min faster ride.)
I caught her stopping to walk just after she talked to Matt (over her shoulder).
Running off with 4.4 miles left!
Pharmie was just behind Angela! I literally turned around after Angela ran off
to see Pharmie. She was throwing trash to her brother - she was eating a LOT!
Breast-feeding and racing takes a lot of calories!
Running off and eating/smiling.
Angela heading to the finish after a barefoot high-five from Henry!
Cute smiles all around.
Mama coming in the distance!
Looking for that high-five from a long distance.
Around the corner to the finish!
Pharmie's Mom had went to her car with Charlie for a while, and they both rested. When they got back as the race was wrapping up, Charlie was in a good mood:
Pharmie getting her age group medal!
Henry walking back to the car with my parents. Thanks Grandpa Dale,
Grandma Connie, and Grandma Monica for hanging out with the boys during the race!!
