That is SOOO fantastic; I know you're proud!! He's a rockstar!

Our family has a bazillion pictures from that exact Crabtree spot... beautiful trail; did you start at the top and hike down, or from the bottom?

Missy said...

Rockin, way to go hubs! Hopefully, he enjoyed it too. Looks like it was a good day.

Shannon said...

He had a GREAT TIME! It only took me 10+ years to get him in on the sport, but I finally DID it.

Jennifer~we hiked up about 2 hours but had to turn around for time and the fact that it was raining. :(
John is determined to get to the top next time.

Thanks for all the congratulations. The tri was a blast! I'll definitely do SML again and some others too. I have an awesome coach, cheerleader, photo team, and support system!

The kids were really great to see cheering as well.

WTG, Hubs!

Then a 2 mile hike next day?

Insane!

Hey, sister, I just GOTTA ask: Do you have a "thing" for my p*ssy-@$$ recumbent bike Morrissey? Because you keep asking me if I rode him this past weekend or that day or whatever.

But if you love him - I mean REALLY love him - I won't stand in your way ... IF you can make him happy.

Just promise to treat him right, is all.
