Hey guys & gals. I posted this in the Tri forum but thought some of you might like to take a look as well.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Way to show the world that not every biker weighs less than my wife! Awesome job! I could never get past the running and swimming part, thus I am a uniathlete.

Awesome! Just Awesome!

My wife is training for an ironman. Me?, swimming? Ok I could survive that. Riding? Ok I could survive that. The run, oh the run.... I am not sure about that part! I have a long ways to go (I hate jogging/running) to attempt an Ironman.

One step at a time I guess??

This is inspiration for me though so who knows? It is nice to hear/see folks who have a build similar to me doing (and finishing) these things.

Again, Congrats!

That was great! I have been talking myself into and out of a Sprint Triathlon. Thanks for helping me talk myself back into it.
