Seeley Tri 2014

Yesterday the girls and I zipped up to Seeley Lake to compete in a triathlon that T introduced us to several years ago.  It's a bit bittersweet participating in this event.  I'm not entirely sure why, but it reminds me of Theresa so much.  The girls (and me too) look forward to the excitement in the morning, the energy of all the athletes, that hangs in the air.  This year was slightly anticlimactic; the race coordinator failed to advertise the event on the triathlon website so there was about 1/5th of the typical turnout.  It was kinda depressing actually.  However, we were able to stay for the barbecue afterward due to the lack of people and a super short line!  The water in Seeley is always a perfect temperature and the run and bike are beautiful, winding through the trees and pretty darn flat.  The girls are preparing to do the tri alone next year and bag the team concept.  While it is fun to be with friends, they are ready for the challenge.
Watch out Seeley 2015!

And here comes my girl ~

The transition area was so empty, there was even room for Max 
to hang out below the bike racks ~

Kath & Hannah-bee...we missed Uncle Ben in the pic,
In typical fashion, he pulled a disappearing act 
as soon as he was done ~:o(
