DEDICATED

What are you dedicated to?

Besides God and me, my sweet hubby has dedicated his time to training for triathlons. He enjoys the challenge involved in competing in three different sports over the course of a few hours.

Swim

Bike

Run.

All in the same morning/afternoon. Yeah, nuts, I know… LOL.

Sunday he got to participate in the Tempe International

and all his dedication paid off. He had a great race despite the hundred-degree weather.

Trans to bike

It’s hard to get pictures of him coming out of the water.

So here he is starting the bike portion

of the swim, bike, run.

Bike rideThat’s him on his

bike.

He cranked it at

about 23 MPH

for 25 miles.

He just got his Cervelo

a couple months earlier . . .

It worked

well for him!

FinishIt was nearing 100 degrees

when he finished here.

Man, was it HOT for me and I was just standing in the shade watching, drinking ice cold Gatorade.

Jeepers!

    Believe it or not, I’ve always wished I was an athlete. I’ve done my share, but Charlie! Wow. . .
    Sounds like a great day and a great run 🙂
    You know, the swimming should be last. . .at least in AZ 🙂 You could cool off at the end LOL

    In the summer, I dedicate my time to the gardens outside my house. In the winter, I dedicate my time to writing. (Actually, that’s kind of a year-round thing.) I’ve also been known to dedicate time to my kids, my family, my music . . .

    Please tell Charlie . . .that he’s incredible! He should keep it up. It’s an inspiration.

    Kat–it’s good to see you back. Missed ya. Yes, I’ll be sure to tell him. 🙂

    KM–Yeah, the swimming should be last, you’re right. MAN, was it hot for him during the run!

  5. I love to write. I dedicate my time to blogging and writing my book.

    Dedication is definitely the word I would give to Charlie. Holy macarel! That’s quite a feat. Right now my family is dedicated to girls fastpitch softball. Both my girls play on separate teams and my husband coaches one of the teams, then he also plays a co-ed softball team. I am the manager for one of the teams as well, so that is a lot of work in and of itself. Anyway, that’s what keeps us busy until the middle of July. This week we had games every night of the week.
