The weekend of Emory's birthday my sister and Curt came in town to help celebrate. The timing worked out GREAT because Ryan had his final triathlon of the season at Trail of Tears State Park. It's only about 20 minutes from Cape and it is a gorgeous area....not to mention the temperature was in the 50's and it was AWESOME. It felt like a real fall morning. So we all loaded up bright and early and headed out to watch Ryan and Jason compete.
It was SO COLD in the morning...I can't imagine swimming in a pond. Thankfully, they have wet-suits, so it isn't as bad, but holy cow...
Watching Ryan get out of the swim..
Is this not the most handsome hunk ever? HA! Curt is a pretty tall guy and he didn't bring any "cold weather" clothes with him because he didn't know it was going to be so chilly. So he borrowed my Dad's old SEMO sweatshirt from 1980 and we could NOT stop laughing.
Jason was about a minute ahead of Ryan going into the run, but Ryan ended up passing him and beating him by 11 seconds. These boys...they are always neck and neck!
Did Lindsey and I marry some studs or what?? HAHA!
Heather Mayhew...this last picture is for you! HA!
