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.
