Triumphant finish

We took a quick weekend trip up to Washington D.C. this week to support our son, Charlie (or Chuck as he likes to be called), in a triathlon he was running. The event, the Nation's Triathlon, was a fund-raiser for the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society. This is a picture of him about 300 or 400 feet short of the finish line. Obviously, its a good feeling to finish one of these grueling events -- 1 mile swim, 26 mile bike ride and 6 mile run.

Steve, I'm overcome by your son's joy that you have captured in your splendid photo. I have to say thanks so much, to the both of you.

My older son Lamont used to do duathlons and triathlons--I know from watching him how much effort it takes. Our children can truly amaze us which is a wonderful feeling.
