Just in case they didn't show up too well on the last shot--the strawberry pie and clipboard with a bunch of my 'sayings.'
The volunteer high jump coach (former college all-american) and his freshman daughter who qualified for the state meet on Thursday. He's TALL.
Also, it was a great year for the guys with two qualifiers for the district finals.
Much like most of my spring track meets, it was a soggy day for Beth's triathlon down in Maryland. My early entertainment for the day was watching cars attempt to make it up a muddy grass hill. It was just like watching cars try to get up a snowy and icy road.
We got there on Friday and at the expo I got my (almost annual) pair of "once-worn shoes" for $50. What a deal! These Saucony's retail for $130-$160!!
Before the race, Beth, Lindsay, and Kim.
While Beth's out racing, I was doing some goose-hunting.
Beth in T1.
Congrats to Laurel Wassner on the win. What an amazing athlete, cancer survivor, and supporter of cancer programs.
I got a wave from 6-time Kona Champion Natascha Badmann as she was nearing mile 6 of the run.
Mom got a shot of my spectathleting-in-action. I was on the return from cheering Beth in at the end. After the heavy rain at the beginning of the day, I shed the jacket for the standard obnoxious yellow for Beth to pick me out.
