The Grand Columbian Triathlon

Justin competed/participated in a half iron man triathlon last month, and finished respectably in 7hrs. and 16 minutes. It was a 1.2 mile swim, 50 mile bike ride and a 13.1 mile run. He amazes me with his strength and determination. The crazy thing is, that he did not prepare for this at all...he really wanted to see how much of this challenge would be mental and how much would be physical. As you know, he is always in good shape for the average person, but I couldn't believe what he was going to do. He is nuts! He also did a 37 mile run in July where he finished in 7 and a half hours, resulting in a fractured foot. His next goal is a 50 mile run, and a 100 mile run to follow. Hopefully those two events will help him get this stuff out of his system :)


So happy you have something to say...
