Wow what a weekend

We spent the rest of our weekend watching Dan compete down in Long Beach for a triathalon. This was our view VERY early this morning as we stood on the beach waiting for the race to start. Amazing huh? I mean it made being up at 5am all worth the while.
We snuck in one last good luck hug before he ran off.
Ok, so this is his age group going into the water but I have no idea where he ended up, it was madness, but he is in there...........somewhere.
Here is he is coming out of the water. Hes behind the lady in the blue cap. He came out of the water REALLY fast. I was shocked to see him already. I had lost the rest of my cheering section to sand castles on the beach by this point.
Here he is coming across the finish line looking pretty good I might add! My camera died right after this so I didn't get a shot of the clock but he cut 35 minutes off his last time so we were soooo excited. Plus he had lots more color in face this time and didn't feel like he wanted to die. I think he is getting the hang of this race thing. I was on edge for both Dan and Morgan all weekend so I don't know how much more I can take. :) We left here and met up with our cousins who had a soccer game in Long Beach so as you can imagine we are all exhausted. Fun but tired.

Gooooooo Dan. And I sooooo ditto Christy P's comment. I think I will just sit back and cheer him on from here. But, just so you know..I have cheered my husband on at MANY events like this. Brings back tons of memories.
