Coeur d'Alene Triathlon

Brent preps for the swim.
The swim course was 0.9 miles...more than an Olympic length. Brent was pleased to find the usually chilly CDA waters to be rather pleasant, and he didn't get kicked in the face, so altogether it was a pleasant swim. If you look closely you can see Tawny on the left hand side. She's the first bright orange volunteer shirt you see.
The bike course was pretty hilly, but GORGEOUS! Most of it followed along the shores of Lake Coeur d'Alene.
Have you ever seen such a smiley triathlete?

A grand finish!

Happy to be done!
Transition area. It was a well-attended event at around 750 participants.
Ready to go home and SLEEP!
