Salem Spring Triathlon

I competed in my first triathlon a couple weeks ago and had a great time. A big thanks to Heather for sucking me into the sport and being such a great support and an awesome coach, but this post is a shout out to my wonderful wife Jordan. She is my #1 fan and and such an incredible support. She hasn't missed a single one of my races, even though it isn't always fun or easy to be so supportive. Thank you sweetheart for letting me "do my thing." Thanks to all of you for supporting the crazies.
Couldn't have asked for a better day...the weather was perfect. Could've done without the E-Coli in the pond though.

Looking sweet before the least Heather is.
I'm somewhere in there, probably in the front
Starting the second bike loop...Lance Armstrong was just in front of me. "Not this time Lance!"
Finally finishing...duel to the death with the dude behind me. I won.

Fun at the Zoo

We took a trip to the zoo on Memorial Day and had about as much fun as humanly possible. The weather was perfect and the people watching was even better. I think the kids liked the animals in the cages and the adults were amused by those that weren't in their cages...
Sometimes, this is how Jordan wakes me up too

Very nice ladies, very nice...
Apparently, he is about the right size for a gorilla
