On to the race...the race started at 6am with the Elite men swimming first. Then every 4 minutes another age group would go. There were 15 waves total. Adam's age group (men 25 - 29) can be seen here wearing the pink swim caps. Each age group was assigned a different color swim cap. Adam's group hit the water at 6:16am.
The teams didn't go till 6:36am, so I had some time to kill. We had some time to snap a team photo. Ryan (bike), Brad (swim), and me (run). Only problem, Brad found himself in the ER Thursday night with some heart/chest pains, he was kept overnight and the doctors told him, "No competing". We were able to find a last minute substitute to fill in on the swim. Brad rode his bike down to cheer on his team.
After the swim, Adam headed for his bike while Megan and Heather cheered him on.
After our swimmer, Mitch, got out of the water, he handed off to Ryan on the bike.
After the bike, Adam was off and running...
I too got the hand off from Ryan and started my run.
Here is Adam coming in for the finish!
...and he crossed the line on the blue carpet!
Here I come into the finish...
...and down the blue carpet to the finish line.
For the team competition, we all did really well and ended up winning! We couldn't find Mitch, but Ryan and I got a quick team picture. Full team results can be found here.
Heather and I after the race hanging out in the sun!
It was a really fun day, lots going on and lots of people to cheer for. Adam ended up doing really well...Nice Job Adam! Full age group results can be found here. We had a great weekend hanging out with Adam and Megan, we can't wait till the next triathlon!
