Thanks everyone! Ah, yes a kahlua mousse pie. Unfortunately, his vacation ended today and he is back at work. Maybe he'll be up for it next weekend.

THAT's FANTASTIC!

When I was younger I did some and know how incredibly hard they are just to finish.

To win .... with 400 other competitors? THAT'S TRULY MAGNIFICENT.

CONGRATULATIONS!!

I know jennyma! I think we were both surprized. I think they should give out a last place prize. I love watching those people who are just so determined to finish and have no interest in winning. It's great cheering for the last person who finishes, I think they get more applause and respect than the person who won. I like watching the races and seeing the determination in their eyes to finish. I like seeing them starting the run and running towards their son or daughter to give them a quick kiss before powering on.

lol pds!

Without sounding sexist .... those pictures ....

I can see why he won. He obviously puts in a lot of hard work into his training!



ps... i was never last but was often hovered around by officials in boats or on surfboards during the swim, they are not used to dogpaddlers and backstrokers in a triathlon.
