Photo Spectator Report – The Hubs’ Oly!

Folsom TRI 006 I love the early morning sights on race days!

Folsom TRI 009 Of course we arrived early to get his pick of the bike racks.  It was still dark but already pretty busy in the transition area.

Folsom TRI 010 Not only did every single spot on the racks fill up, but some people had to lean their bikes against trees and the fencing!

Folsom TRI 014 Body marking (and, yeah, this is what wearing Newtons can do for your calves!)

Folsom TRI 019 It looks like he just smacked the guy next to him, doesn’t it?  This was a deep-water start, so they were treading water.

Folsom TRI 029

 

 

 

 

 

 

Outta the water!  Not his best time, but he’s nice and relaxed for a kick-ass bike and run.

1500 meter swim:  31:01

T1:  2:31

 

Folsom TRI 037Let’s get this party started!  40K bike:  1:09:05, T2:  1:06

Little Boy got to use our older camera to take pics and video today and he did a really good job!

Folsom TRI 085

 

 

 

Of course, that means there are about 57 pictures like this, too.

Congrats to your hubby, he did awesome! With all the great pics you have between your races, the hubby's and the kids' races, I hope you scrapbook. :)

I'm glad you said something about his calves because, hope you don't mind me checking out your hubs, but holy cow! those are impressive! I even made my husband come check them out. :P Great job him, though, looks like an awesome race.

I love the self portrait too, any time my son gets to play photo guy I get several just like that.

Wow, I'm with Laurie, those calves are amazing. I love that Tri is a family activity, can't wait for my little ones to be out there with me.

I love the photos! Congrats to the Hubbs! I often wish I would get into tri when I see the amazing experince other have and then I remember I sink like a rock and can't balance worth a hoot. Oh! I will live through others in the tri department.

Awesome race!
