We spent Memorial-Day weekend down in Austin with a few of our friends to watch Daddy run in the Cap-Tex triathlon.
Saturday was arrival day and we met up with the Walkers and Boyers at Torchey’s Tacos for dinner. Sunday, we met up at church and then headed over to the Ashley’s sister’s house where we spent the afternoon and evening. The kids worked out some energy at the neighborhood playground.
Even though it was bright and sunny Sunday afternoon, Austin experienced a torrential downpour Saturday night and the rivers were all running high and fast. Because of this — and all the debris being carried down stream — the swim portion of the triathlon was canceled. Monday morning, the boys arrived at the starting line bright and early and hopped on their bikes. The kids and I took the hotel shuttle downtown and found ourselves a comfy bench along the bike route to watch. The bike course took Daddy right past us four times.
After he passed the final time, we walked down to the park to meet up with the rest of the gang.
We cheered on all three dads as they passed.
These are the official photos from the race:
Here are his stats — not too bad for his first time. They were all disappointed that the swim was cancelled. Now they have to sign up for another one so they can say that they did a full triathlon.
DJ, Bryan, and James. (You’d never guess they didn’t go swimming with how soaked they were — it was very humid out there!)
The kids wanted a ride on Daddy’s bike as we walked back to the car.
