Yesterday we woke up early (I don't know if I'll ever sleep in again on a weekend, fyi.) to head to the Tri at the Grove, a local triathlon that several of our friends were racing and the manfriend was working at.
In addition to being breathtaking, the temps were warm and the race was well organized. It was fun to get to see the sprint and olympic distances coming in and out constantly from one sport to the next. Go Eric!
Lindsey even did the sprint triathlon in the midst of recovering from her stress fracture. And she decided to do it 9 days before the race! Impressive stuff.
Because I get jealous of seeing others sweat, I brought my running gear with me and ducked out to run a loop around the lake (8.5 miles) while most of the athletes were out on the bike course. The legs hurt a bit from Saturday's 20 miler, but not too bad.
I made it back in time to see my friend Dawnetta finish the Olympic distance!
Sunday night after being out in the 80 degree temps all day (this is what Oregonians call hot), all we wanted for dinner was something cool. So we made our own version of Turtles' salad (a local bar and grill w/ deliciously huge salads)..
And for dessert/snackage, I present you Mama Pea's Another Kind of Bar (before adding chocolate)
P.S. Way to rock Lake Placid Ironman, Emily! I can't even imagine running a marathon AFTER swimming 2.4 miles AND biking 112. Holy unbelievable.
