Today, Gary has his first triathlon sprint. A 250 yard swim, 12.5 mile bike, and 2 mile run in under 2 hours!
We got to see him before the event started. When his turn came up, he did the swim . . .
then ran over to the bike where he put his running belt on with his number, toweled off, put his gloves, helmet, and glasses on . . .
. . . got back, mounted his bike, took off the gloves, helmet, and glasses, and then did the running leg of the race.
It was exciting to watch. I’m hoping the event photographers got the swimming section since spectators weren’t allowed in there due to the small space. I’ll post photos if there are any.
Gary is looking forward to his next race!
