Two New Musselmen

What is a Musselman? Some of you may say they are crazy people. That may be true but they are also very tough people. This past weekend, my husband, MTH, and my sister-in-law, KSH, finished a half ironman length triathlon in Geneva, NY. It is called the Musselman Triathlon (thus, the fact that they are both now Musselmen). The distances are: 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run. The day was beautiful. It started out around 60 degrees and ended around 82 degrees. I'll let the pictures tell the story:

MTH mentally preparing for the day

MTH's wave of swimmers - they all start at once!

MTH heads off for the scenic bike route

KSH is off on the bike

First guy out for the run - he won

MTH coming back in from the bike ride

MTH off for the last leg - just a half marathon to go

KSH gracefully dismounts the bike after a multiple hour bike ride

She's flying!

And, she's done!

Here comes MTH

Finally, time to relax
