Saturday was the annual Tri-Jesus Triathlon. This would have been Todd's 4th year, Drew's 3rd, and Noah's 2nd. Unfortunately Todd wasn't able to finish it this year. For the blog readers that don't know, he hurt his back a couple of weeks ago and is still having troubles. He wasn't going to race and then decided at the last minute to try it. He managed to make it through the swim and bike but by the time it came for him to run, he was in too much pain to do it. I felt so bad for him. I know he's getting frustrated with the pain and it's keeping him from doing the things he loves. He's getting an MRI soon so hopefully we can see what's going on, if anything.
Drew during the swim portion. He blew his swim time out of the water over last years time. (sorry for the bad pun)
Drew crossing the finish line.....way earlier than I expected. You were a superstar Drew!!
Noah starting out on the swim. This was the first triathlon he has done without a flotation device so I was very proud of him. He got so tired but he never gave up. Great job babe! Look at that grin on his face. He was so excited.
For the second year in a row, I was able to get a picture of Drew and Noah swimming together. Noah was on his way out as Drew was on his way back.
That hill was too big for Noah, he pushed his bike up the last part. It's ok buddy!
Noah running towards the finish line. You're almost there!
Drew with his finishing medal.
A bunch of the club members went out to eat at Cutters that night to celebrate. The kiddos were all sitting at another table. It was a good time!
