My farther rented a 40 foot RV and he drove us 6 hrs to Galveston where the race took place. I helped the best I could to make sure we didn't crash on the way as my two brothers Madison and Wayne hung out in the back with mom. My mom needed to rest and focus on her big race so she chilled and slept when she could. We made it safely, luckily hahaha and now had to get my mother registered. The race was on Saturday morning at 5am so time to kick back and rest up a bit.
Saturday morning at 5 a.m. I got up to cover mom's every move preparing for the race. I wanted to fully cover the event and give it a photojournalism type of vibe. Getting photos of all the work that goes into the race before, during and after. Watching this triathlon is making me feel like I need to try and do this myself and set a goal to do one, hey if my 58 year mom can do this I better at least try. (hahahah but she did raise three crazy, wild boys) By the way, for those of you wanted to do this, the race consists of a one mile swim, a 26 mile bike ride and a 6.2 mile run. GO FOR IT!
