Official Photos from the Minnesota Triathlon

>> Monday, August 28, 2017

Two weeks ago was my race report for the "Minnesota Triathlon," and here are some "official" photos from their Facebook page and a photographer who was out there. Here's an edit of 30 photos from the hundreds (possibly over a thousand) that he shared:


An earlier wave with a pretty aggressive dolphin dive. That seems pretty shallow.


Another good dolphin diver.


Start of my wave. Lots of teenage boys in Speedos,
and that's me on the far side (2nd from the left).


Start of our wave from a different angle.


I started swimming, and then popped up because it was too shallow.


Contemplating the race course before ACTUALLY starting to swim.


That's me and my gaping mouth.


A quick sight to find the buoy I need to swim to.


Lots of the bike course was out among fields south of the metro.


About to turn left with just a few miles left on the bike.


I don't know her. But I already like her.


5th place female looking fast!




The lead car (and cyclist) on the way back.


The lead cyclist who FLEW past me.


Doofy me riding in 2nd.


The guy I kept leap-frogging with on the bike. I actually yelled to him as I passed
him the 2nd time: "You'll get me on the flats, and I'll get you up the hills!"


The lead cyclist with a 3 minute lead on me as he dismounts.


Me rolling into T2.




My feet on top of my shoes! (I don't do that very often.)


Oops. This guy must have dismounted WAY too early if he was running back there.


The winner (looking a bit gassed - running scared) about to cross the line.


I didn't make it easy for him. His 3 minute lead at T2 was
down to 0:29 at the finish. But still WAAAAAY out of my reach.


Close up. My form looks OK for the end of a race. And notice the gel "lump" in the
side of my shorts - I don't litter. Oh, and yes, that shirt is 100% soaked through.


I think she was complimenting me on my shorts and I was being coy.


Race buddy Lance taking 5th overall!


#Gunz! (This was a friend of Bill Bs.)


Not a bad shot of 3rd, 2nd, and 1st chatting post-race.


Medals.

Here's the Facebook album with a "highlight reel" of photos, and here's the photographer's complete set of photos from the race. And here's my race report if you missed it. That was a fun race!
