Ellen competed in her first sprint triathlon this morning. She was strong, happy, and inspiring. Andrew finished in 1 hour, 2 minutes. Ellen finished in 2 hours, 15 minutes. They swam, biked, and ran/walked their hearts out. David was an excellent co-cheerleader (he even watched Blake for most of it). What can I say, they are a great team. Ellen looked like a million dollars when she finished and is talking about doing another one sometime soon. We are so proud of her and can't wait to cheer her on again.

All of us looking a bit crazy at dinner (notice my first restaurant salad):
I knew all along Ellen would do great, but I had no idea she would shine like a star when she was finished!
