A few weekends ago my husband thought it would be fun and challenging to commemorate turning 40 by doing a half iron man race.
This breaks down as follows:
Swim: 1.2 miles
Bike: 56 miles
Run: 13.1 miles
I am pretty sure that when I turn 40 I will think of a much more fun and far less taxing way to commemorate the occasion.
But that’s just me.
I drove down after the race started, and arrived at some point during his bike ride. So the first glimpse I had of him was when he came in to the bike area to transition to the run.
He was still smiling.
And he was still moving!
And saw him again about halfway through the run.
Of course he had to stop briefly for his adoring fans.
And then, 70.3 miles and about 6.5 hours later, he finished!
We are so proud of you!!
