We Interrupt This Pink Saturday

This Pink Saturday post is interrupted for a report from Clearwater Beach.............The winner of this mornings biathlon in her age group is (drumroll please) my darling daughter, Lucy!
The format was a two mile run, third mile swim, then another two mile run. Here we go!
Coming in from the first running leg, she has to go take off her shoes and put on cap and goggles.

Running into the 71 degree Gulf of Mexico. Brrrrrrr! (Afterwards she told me it felt good)

Crossing the finish line. Go girl!

Mom and daughter admiring the winner's plaque. Yeah Lucy!
There's a half Ironman World Championship here next weekend so the man who won this weekends race was from Finland training for the Ironman.
