My Spudman Triathlon Stud

And now, a post all about Bron!


Spoiler: Since Bron is proudly holding his "medal" you obviously know he didn't wind up on the bottom of the river.  Instead, I am proud to announce that Bron finished his very first triathlon with flying colors!  

Now let me tell you all about it... 

Saturday Bron participated raced his guts out in the Spudman Triathlon.  He and a couple of friends signed up for the race together.  Nothing quite like a little peer pressure, ya?  They swam 1 mile, biked 25 miles, and ran 6 miles.  It was Bron's very first triathlon ever.  I think he had so many nervous butterflies that he didn't sleep a wink the night before, but he rocked it anyway coming in at 2 hours and 55 minutes.  Words can't describe how proud I am of my man.

 ^^There's my man!!!  Go get 'em!^^
I was so glad I left our little boys at home with a babysitter.  It was nice to be there to support him 100%.
 ^^Look at all those little goldfish go!^^
^^Just to give you a better idea of what the Snake River is like.^^  
It was the first year in the history of the race that it rained, but I think the racers welcomed the cloudy skies. 
 Next up: a little cycling followed by a nice long run.  Bron said that transition was pretty tough!  
Legs like jelly.  I can only imagine
^^And here he is!  Tired and running full speed towards the finish line.^^  
The Spudmen
Bron, Lorren, Dan, and Aaron

These guys are studs.  They're a little sore and stiff, but they had fun!  I hope they do it again next year.

I love you and am so proud of you, Bron!
