Patty and Jacque competed in their first-ever triathlon this weekend and totally rocked it.
My job was to support them, drink a lot of coffee and take pictures. I nailed the coffee part.
Rolling into the parking lot just after 6 am. (Now you know the reason for all that coffee.)
Nervous rookies? Not by the looks of it.
Sold out show. 500 spots, 500 competitors.
Patty out of the water . . .
. . . and onto the bike.
Ditchin the wheels and headin' out on foot.
I'm pretty sure nothing has ever looked so sweet to Patty as that finish line.
Here's Jacque, killing the run.
Life is good when you have your first tri in the bag.
