Another Weekend, Another Triathlon
This time we're at lovely Lake Perris, about 1-1/2 hours northeast of San Diego.

Lake Perris, 6:30 am ...

... and about 1 hour later (7:30 am), with swimmers heading toward the lake

A Sea of Swim-Capped Heads are all I can see ...

Here's my darlin' man, coming in after the 27-mile bike portion:

And here he is in the Transition Area, getting ready for the 4-mile run:

Our team did very well. Felipe, one of the coaches, won the event, and another teammate got 1st in her age group. This was DH's longest race in terms of distance, and a challenging race in terms of the course itself. We lucked out with the weather; it was overcast and chilly until about 1pm, when the sun came out. But the next day the temperatures dropped dramatically and it rained all morning. That would have made for a very miserable race for participants and spectators alike!

I did do some road knittin' ... and even some spectator knitting! I'm sure the competitors were wondering about the crazy woman standing by the side of the road, knitting away, yelling, "Good job! Keep it up!"

Happy Monday, everyone.
