Mr. Andrew Hurst, Triathlete

Two years after thinking about doing a triathlon, Andrew finally completed his first Olympic distance triathlon. Coming in at 155th place out of 1500 ain't that bad! He swam almost a mile, biked 24 miles, and ran 6 miles all in 2 hours, 40 minutes. He came in 9th in his class for the swim, 30th in his class overall, and 137th out of all the men. Andrew's parents made a great cheering squad and Blake enjoyed the long day of triathlon activity. Onto the race.

We stayed here:

It was right on the course so we could cheer from our balcony:

On your marks:

We cheered our brains out:

Daddy did it:

Warren did it too:

Good job to all the athletes who competed!

Ah, finally time to rest:
