I hesitate to include this post. Why? Well because many of you may automatically assume that BJ or perhaps I am the Ironman. But no, at least not this time. This time it was our dear brother-in-law, Mr. David Q. Hatt. We are so proud of him. The full Ironman race is an absoulutely amazing feat. Amazing. 2 1/2 mile swim, 50 mile bike ride and finally a full marathon (26.2 miles). Is that not amazing? All done in about 9-10 hours. Wow. Oh, and did I mention it was in the 90s? It was soooo hot!
BJ caught the fever, the Ironman fever. He wants to do one. I didn't catch that kind of fever, mine was closer to a nice sweaty case of heat stroke. But it was very fun. There were several professional Ironman-ers and Ironwoman-ers and we watch them in transition and finish. Very exciting. And hot.
This was St. George by the way. Early May too. This year. Just a bit behind on my blogging. Just a bit.
A visit to the temple with cousins.
I regret to say that this is the only picture I have of our very own Ironman.
Below are my favorite pictures from the trip. Absolutely nothing to do with the Ironman race. Nope. Just a too big skirt and an infectious little redhead.
Poor Haylee was sick for the first half of our 5 day racecation. But she pushed through it enough to complete her own little race. Bree too. And extra patient Daddy.
