Cleveland Triathlon

Early this morning (6:15), Don and I dropped Katherine and Josh off at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame so they could get ready for the triathlon.

It was a beautiful morning.

The race began in the harbor behind the Rock Hall. A number of kayaks were stationed to guide the swimmers in the right direction and make sure no one drowned.

Katherine & Josh did the "Sprint" level of triathlon. Can you find them on the dock?

They jumped in one by one and were spaced out by about a body length. This is Josh entering the water with Katherine right behind him.

The Sprint level includes a half-mile swim,

a 16 mile bike ride,

and a 5K (3.1 mile) run.

You can bet they were excited to step over that finish line! I was excited for them! It was quite an accomplishment, and a goal they had worked toward for at least 6 months.

They finished in 2 hours 17 minutes.

Peter and Kendall made it down to see the finish!

Heading home to take a nap.
