Topsail Island Triathlon
This past Saturday, Joe entered his second sprint triathlon. It was held at Topsail Island that is about 45 minutes away. His buddy and training partner, Josh (see picture), also participated this year. The race consisted of a 750 meter ocean swim, 8 mile bike, and 3 mile run. They both ended up placing in their age group...Josh got first and Joe placed SECOND! Way to go Joe! This being only his 2nd ever triathlon, we're all very proud of him. After he went up to receive his prize and have his picture taken on the podium, he looks at me w/a big smile and says, "Well this is just going to feed the bug." Looks like there will be a whole lot more bike parts around here and a lot less jewelry. I guess Yurman will have to wait!
