Dave's Triathlon

First, let me just tell you that I am so proud of Dave! He competed in his first triathlon this past Saturday and he did an amazing! I couldn't believe how well he did with little time to train! David and Owen were so proud of their Daddy. We were there to cheer him on the entire time and enjoyed watching him swim, bike and run. Even Owen was cheering, "Go Daddy, go Daddy!". This traithlon is for beginners and included a 1/4 mile swim, 10 mile bike, and 3 mile run. 267 people competed in this triathlon which took place at Lums Pond in Delaware.

Dave did so well that he actually placed 2nd in his weight division and won a medal! David was so excited about Dave winning, that he ran up to Dave on the podium. :)

Of course, Dave is so humble that he didn't want me to post anything about it or even tell anyone, but I told him that I absolutely couldn't help but tell everyone! :)

Great job Dave!!!
