Decisions, decisions. In the mean time here are a few of my photos.
Out of the water I'm being very sportsman like and not shoulder checking other athletes like some people I know. I'm glad I get out of the water before her...sheesh!. On the bike you can see the train of people getting ready to pass me on this hill but I'm being a good boy and following my plan.
Now I'm up to cruising speed on the slight downhill back in to town and headed out for the run.
The death march is nothing to fear because as you can see at some point it will end if you are patient.
Finally getting to rear back and deliver the hammer blow to the finish line. I just can't tell you how excited I was to see my time. The volunteers who caught me and kept me upright at the finish actually stood me up for a moment and took a step back so i could get my freshly finished photo op. I was able to stand under my own power for the pic then wavered a bit and they hauled me off to the resting area, not the medical tent mind you, just some lawn chairs and pizza.
