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.
