Pics From Todd's Tri

I'm finally getting around to posting some of Todd's pictures from the HyVee Triathlon. He took a buttload of pictures so I tried to grab a few that told the story. Of course with him taking them, he wasn't in many, but luckily I had a few from other people too.

This is one of my favorite pictures. Why?? Because this is what happens when you let a bunch of men read the map and directions. Todd made sure to get the highway number in the picture because he said they should never have been on that highway at all. LOL Men, gotta love them.

This is a few of the guys and a couple of the girls after a practice swim. There were a number of kids in the club that raced too. Drew really wants to do it next year.

Todd and a couple of the guys had to get their pictures taken in the Wheaties box.

The Quincy Multisport Club in their HyVee racing shirts the night before the big event. There were a couple others there also that didn't make the picture. The club was well represented up in Des Moines!!
The freaks, I mean racers, ( I say that lovingly babe) got up at 3:30 to get to the race. They were there even before most of the volunteers! Todd managed to get some can even see the one lone star up there. I'm glad I guess that my husband isn't the only one that can't sleep the night before a big race and gets up in the middle of the night.

Todd starting off on the run portion of the race.
I'm so glad Todd got to go and ended up getting race all the way through. He had a great time and hopefully it will be in the budget and timing for us all to go next year to root for him and the club and for the boys to get a chance to race also.
