We flew to Austin so that my wife could race and we could visit family. The weather in the week leading up to the race had been rainy, but race day was cool (60s F), sunny and windy.

Having been to many of these events, I try to get a sense the day more than shots of racers.

The clouds blew away just after sunrise.

Gear bags ready for the run transition.

In spite of a very choppy swim and a disastrous ride (owing to a broken shift lever that left her in a big gear on a hilly course), my wife finished with a great run and a big smile.

Nice shots! Love the sunrise in the "contact swimming" shot. My son did the Ironman in Mont Tremblant in 2012, they sure know how to put on an event!
Congrats to your wife!

Thanks. Some friends are doing IronMan Arizona this weekend - that is just too darn far. Congrats to your son, that a heck of an achievement.
