As promised in yesterday's Musselman 70.3 recap,
a few photos for your viewing pleasure.
Most of these are bloopers
but I did throw in a few decent ones as well.
I don't really have any swim bloopers, at least ones that were documented on film.
Onto the bike.
And this was coming in after almost 56 miles...
with the last few riding on flat tire. Epic Fail.
& then there was the run.
At least my nephew looked cute.
As mentioned in the recap, I stopped and kissed him on the run.
That is my hand holding his on the right.
About 12 miles later...
I remembered to get rid of the sponges I was hoarding
Oh the finish chute...
at least I managed one good one.
Here's a good one of my sister and myself.
Note that I had ice cream in my hand within 5 minutes of finish.
Would have been less, but I spent that 5 minutes sitting in a kiddie pool full of cold water.
Worth the wait.
And of course, my #1 Fan :) Rocking his volunteer stuff :)
Not only did I get a fabulous medal,
but permanent tan lines
and a knot that took me as much time to get untangled
as it did to navigate the 70.3 miles.
Some random blooper moments not caught on film:
Getting tangled in seaweed and spazzing for 10 seconds trying to get it off.
Slipping and almost falling hard getting out of the water.
(again, thank you to the young man volunteer who caught me)
Getting caught eating PB&J on the bike, and trying to figure out how I was gonna get the sticky PB&J off my hands while riding.
Getting caught singing on the bike, multiple times (one dude started singing along though! Folks I was singing T.Swift, he held a tune better than I!)
in T2 I unscrewed my water bottle top to dump the remaining little bit on my head...unscrewed but forgot to remove the top...dumping water and the lid on my head. DOH!
Do you have any race bloopers?
What is you "tired running" quirk?
T-rex arm? tilted head? Bow legged?
