David is doing 5 races this year. These first two, he did in May, in two weekends. He is getting ready for a Half Iron Man at the end of the summer. He is doing great and having a lot of fun along the way!
Red Rock RelayHe did this race with a group from work. It was a 64 mile race down by Moab. Everyone ran 2 legs that equaled about 10 miles with a 2.5 - 3 hour rest in between. It looked like a cool race, but it did have lots of hills and was challenging. Their team did really well finishing in just over 8 hours, and that was with one teammate even getting lost and tacking on another mile or so.
The views on this race are just awesome!
The Finish together as a team:)
This was my first race to not go down and watch. I was sad to not be there to support, but I guess it was bound to happen sometime.

For this race, David competed in an Olympic Triathlon. His mom and brother did it with him and we all got to go down and make a fun weekend trip out of the event. It was a tough course, but everyone did great!
The Olympic Race consists of a 1500 meter (.9 mile) Swim, 24.8 mile Bike Ride, and a 10K (6.2 mile) Run
The kids were good supporters. It was hot and we had little shade, but they made the best of it and were little troopers!
We stayed two nights down in Hurricane and had a great time playing in the pool, relaxing and going out to eat.
