Some Images from the RI Ironman 70.3

* My brother-in-law, Ray, borrowed my camera and shot all the swimming and cycling pictures and some of the first few running pictures.  I'll indicate when mine begin.

** One other thing - because my nephew, DC Rainmaker, refers to his AWESOME girlfriend as The Girl, and he has not (as of this posting) put up any pictures of her (except one of her skiing, and she's about a hundred zillion miles away and pretty much resembles a dot on skiis), I feel honor-bound to also refrain from posting photos of her here.  I will just say, then, in lieu of photos, that she's an amazing athelete and tremendously inspiring.  Julia, in particular, adores The Girl, and at times she refers to the two of them as "The Girl and her boyfriend," rather than "Cousin DC Rainmaker and his girlfriend." 

In fact, I have to broaden the topic here and say that ALL of these triatheletes are inspiring.  I was close to crying more than once as I watched these phenomenal men and women run past.  I am in awe of each and every one of them.

Okay, enough talk.  Time for pictures.

One thought on “Some Images from the RI Ironman 70.3

  1. Jayne,

    I’m 26, live in Starkville, Mississippi, and have a beautiful wife and 3 month old little girl. I got a hankerin’ for some pictures of big grills, and your post of the day you and the husband got your new grill popped up on a google search. You’re writing style is light and descriptive, and I really enjoyed reading some of your posts. BTW, you write A LOT! Not sure if you knew that.

    Got your site on my RSS feed now. Looking forward to more good reading!
