GREAT!!! Weather was lovely and the company was even better. I was bad with the pictures...just too busy!
Never short on words, what i was going to say was that the Lake was 56-57 degrees or so, WARM for Lake Superior...so had i had a wetsuit on and one of those hats with ears. ANd the sun was out, And there was no wind. HA, Dont think you will catch me at St. George, but anyways...
Oh I did take these pics:
Ruby looking longingly at the river. Until she got in and had a panic attack bc the rocks were slippery and i had to lift her out. Poor girl. She JUST learned to swim this summer!
And modeling my mom's glasses. I may wear them in my next race.
We did do a race this weekend. WE. Rich did his first race! He did so well, I am so proud. And he even finished the entire run, and wanted to run again this weekend at the cabin. Whoa.
I asked if he would do another one. And despite saying "next year, maybe," i did catch him grabbing his goggles to go swim in the Lake and also talking like he really MAY do another.
I have a few more short races this summer, so we shall see.
And i have to post this picture. CY texted me that Kerry ( the fantastic eye behind the lens of Yndecam!) had a pic of me trying to put my helmet on backwards. Yup. I did. So for all of you readers ( or all 2 of you) that think i am the old pro, um..not. 2nd year racing. Yup I am a dork. So dont be embarrassed when you do this. Just PLEASE dont ride out of T1 with it on. I realized pretty darn quick that it was backwards but in my defense it was windy and so it USUALLY sits nicely on my aero bars, facing the correct way. I do have a bottle holder on my Aero Bars so it kept blowing off. Obviously i set it down and didnt really pay attn to the orientation of the helmet. Yup, Always something isnt it :) So Laugh at me. I continue to do so!
So up next...road bike cleaning, Triple Bypass cramming, and more family fun. I am not doing a tri all of July. That is pretty weird.But Ok, lotsa bike stuff and even an OW swim race. Sans wetsuit.
Yippee for summer!
