I finished post planning at school, ran home, threw some stuff in the car, and the road trip began!
We were heading north! To Middlebury, CT to race in Rev3's olympic relay, half iron relay, and George was racing the Aquabike!
I might lose my friend jill over this photo, but I really think that it displays how we were feeling about Saturday's race.
It was raining, we were cold, we were feeling a little iffy, but you know what? She put on that wetsuit, we raced, and we got second place in the relay division!
And then Sunday came......
Sunday was the day of the technical issues for our family!
First, our car got stuck in the mud. And we just left it, and went to race...
Then, I had some issues with my chain and had to get off my bike twice. George had TWO flats IN transitions! Yikes!
All in all though, everyone had a great, and fun race! We all put in an awesome effort, and we were so glad to have done it!
And then our car was still stuck in the mud. Thanks to some REALLY nice people, we were able to get it out, get coated in mud (at one point, George was face first in the mud!), and then we drove that beauty to Manhattan to have dinner with some friends!
Luckily for us it rained, which we thought would help that car. No luck. But it did cause a double rainbow!
So we had a great dinner in Manhattan, and drove straight home through the night!!!
What an adventure of a weekend!!
