Triathlon

Today, Tyler completed his first triathlon. It was on Whidbey Island (beautiful!). We had a great day and couldn't be more proud of him!
Getting ready to leave for the race... 5am
Taking the ferry to Whidbey Island. It was a cloudy day, but still quite pleasant.
Getting ready to start. He doesn't even look nervous.
Tyler's wave taking off in the water. He's somewhere in there. Coming out of the water. He completed the swim way faster than we expected. We were so excited for him.
This was the cheering squad. The twins' dad, Mike, did the triathlon with Tyler. It was awesome to have Kirsten with me all morning during the race too.
Tyler looks so happy because he is just about to finish the biking leg of the race. He said that was definately the hardest part. It turns out Whidbey Island is a very hilly place.
Running to the finish line.
After the race. Doesn't he look great? :)
This triathlon was a 1/2 mile swim, 19.5 mile bike ride, and 3.8 mile run. Tyler did it in 2 hours and 4 minutes. He's amazing!

I really admire people who do stuff like this. Triathlons and 5ks. I literally think I have a better chance at winning a Grammy than I would have of doing something like this. Congrats!
