Those of you familiar with triathlons know that are the three components of a triathlon. This past Sunday Tim (our Dad) and Lindsay (our daughter and sister) completed the Cleburne, Tx., IronHorse Triathlon.  Lindsay has done many triathlons including a half IronMan and an IronMan, plus several marathons. Tim is an avid bicyclist completing a 50 mile bike ride. One of his goals is to complete a 100 mile ride. Another goal is to begin triathlons. He is a decent runner and great bicyclist, but not such a good swimmer. He's been training for over a month swimming six hours a week with Lindsay, who is an excellent swimmer.Well, this past Sunday, all the training paid off. He came through with flying colors! (Tim just celebrated his 57th birthday!) It was so much fun watching Tim and Lindsay completing the Triathlon together!!

This man blew me away. He is eighty years old!!!  He has the physique of someone decades younger!! I only hope to be half as fit at his age!!
