Lawman & Tracy's swim heat started at 7:00 am. Here they are waiting and then they were off. Notice the blonde girl in the red shorts--that's B3. She's sporting our Team Burton shirts we had made for this weekend.
Lawman was out of the water in 42 minutes. Oh, and the distance was 1.2 miles. Someone would have had to rescue me.
Next stop...transition and onto the bike.
B2 and B3 were tired so they caught a few Z's while dad was on the bike. They had about 3 hours to kill.....good time for a nap.
Here he comes. 56 miles later, he's ready for dismount. Man that's alot of miles. Lawman said it wasn't a flat ride either; every hill in the area was part of the course.
Now it's back to transition to prepare for the run. Put the bike on the rack, get your race belt, shoes and gel packs. 13 miles to go. Oh, and locate the wifey on the fenceline, get a kiss and a few words of encouragement.
Here he is at the completion of the first leg of the run. We'll be able to see him 2 more times before the finish line.
6 hours and 23 minutes later, finished at last. Time to re-hydrate. What an accomplishment. Way to go Lawman. His best friend since race day has been the bottle of Aleve. After a few days rest it will be time to start training again. Full ironman in Oklahoma City in September. Do you think he's certifiably nuts?
