Hurray for Kevin

This is another speed post, between trips. We just got back yesterday from Kevin's full Ironman Tri in Florida, and this afternoon I'm leaving for Sierra Leone for work. I may be back this weekend, or I may be back next week. I'm trying not to worry about the up in the air-ness of the whole thing.

Kevin with IM Medal

I'm really proud of Kevin for finishing (14 hours and 10 minutes! That's a LONG time to keep going!). And he can still walk!

As usual, I lost him immediately in the crowd of swimmers at the start, took terrible pictures during the bike (mostly of his back wheel, with someone else in the center of the shot), and could barely operate the camera during the run. But he finished!

[Also, I got tons of gorgeous yarn from Schaefer right before we left for Florida. I barely got to look at it before we left, and now I have to leave it behind again. Woe is me.]

Congrat, Kevin is right!!

Well done! I have no idea how you can put your body through such torture and then smile while taking a photo sortly after. I'd be too busy puking to pose. :)

Are you back yet??? Geez, I miss you.

Hope you didn't get taken away by blood diamond runners. (Or if you did, I hope they give you back with your pockets full of sparkley stuff.)
