So maybe I should have used a few less on that last post eh? That was one loooooooooong post. I don’t even know if I would have read that whole thing. Sorry about all that. For those of you who’d like the abbreviated more picturesque version, this posts for you. Here’s the shorter version of our big win. Although I won’t be recapping the whole entire controversy surrounding our win, you do actually have to read the long post for that. Otherwise, enjoy!
Insert Rocky Theme here as we make our entry
Stupid bib pins. I’m faking that smile.
On our way to rack our back at the transition area. Um…what is it exactly we are supposed to be doing here?
Not sure. But we asked this dude who was looking at us kind of funny. He said, “I have no idea either.” We laughed (see us laughing) and my dad said, “Oh is this your first time too?” Reasonable assumption right? His reply: “No.” Then continued to stare at us. Um…ok.
Plotting our transition and what exactly we’ll be doing with that ankle strap.
Just putting this one in here because I want you all to note the extraordinary reflective powers of my dad’s jacket. You will never ever miss him on the bike. His coat was designed by angels.
See me there #187. Please note that I would be the only female in the bunch. I am just that fast. I mean look at that one dude’s arm. Ok technically you can’t see him because he’s hidden by #94, but just look at that arm! And where am I? Oh yes, right behind his royal highness, King Superfit. Ok either that or maybe there just needs to be way more women participating. Come on ladies!!!
That would be my dad indicating to our loyal support crew the exact number of relay teams we are competing against.
My dad looking focused and determined getting ready for his leg.
Transition #1. Please note the lady in Red waiting with her bike watching. That would be Team Ray (dun dun duuuuuuuun…..) 5K Run #1 24:40 (a PR),
Transition #1 0:23
Dad on the bike just getting cranked up.
THIS is what I did in between runs. I raced my daughter. She won. Are you shocked?
Almost finished with his leg. 20K in 38:36. He had estimated between 40-45minutes. Transition #2 was 0:24.
Me about to pass that dude. I have no sympathy even if he did just bike 12 miles. I had a team to beat.
Victory hug. Finishing time 1:29:15
Chloe rocking out at the finish on her “stage” and cheering the runners to the finish line.
A victory dance with my baby because I’m pretty sure we just won.
‘Til next time…
