Congratulations, Big Kahuna!

My friends Chris and Justine did their first half-Iron distance race at the Big Kahuna Triathlon in Santa Cruz yesterday. I spent the day spectating and cheering for them (and running and biking in between). If my legs hurt and I'm sunburnt, imagine how they feel.

Anyway, Chris completely rocked the race and beat her goal time and Justine had an awesome time and did fantastic too! They did all their training while working full time and raising young kids - take that, J-Lo!

Here is their wave starting.


















Here is Chris finishing in the brutal sand chute.

Hi - Thanks for the well-wishes on my blog this week. Congrats to your friends who finished - that's a pretty tough race.

I must say, I'm a little disappointed to find a bunch of dog stuff here - I was thinking I'd see Kermit and Fozzie and Gonzo and Scooter and Statler and Waldorf ... and I could go on. I was a huge Muppets fan. Oh well. Your "How I Got Here" looks interesting - I'll sit down and catch up on the whole story soon.
