We were in Galveston this weekend for our son, Charlie's (Chuck) first triathalon event. He ran his first marathon in January and ran another one last month. So he decided to see how he would fare with a triathalon. He ran the quarter Ironman -- here he emerges from the 800 meter swim in Galveston Bay, stripping off his wetsuit (the water was 70 degrees) to jump on his bicycle for a 28 mile ride before finishing with a 6 mile run.
The event was even a better spectator event than the marathon, because they came back near the transition zone several times -- we saw him 5 times during the race.
