Got there with the wife, tought her how to set the transition, got her all set up, and got my stuff set up next to her.

This race is all about her, and just there to keep her motivated, and present as an emtional booster and as a husband keeping her company.

She did pretty for her second transition experience. Her knees were bothering a little bit, but kept pace with walking and jogging. She did well overall.

Very well ran event for brand new beginners. Would recommend it anytimes. They had a recreational wave, which is what Linsy and I did, and the swim was very well done with staggered starts and making the accountability of all swimmers a top priority. Sweet race. I'm going back next year, but toa race the Sprint distance and for her to do that same course again see the improvements.

In my opinion you did a REAL triathlon ... because the most important and wonderful thing is to share the experience with others, and that's what you did with Linsy! She is an amazing, friendly, very kind person, and I think it's great she had the courage to land in the tri world with both feet.

It meant so much to me that you guys yelled out to me on the run course. What an encouragement!
