Triathlon

Congratulations to Mrs. Westy today. Yesterday she completed her first triathlon by placing 25th in her class (out of over 125)!
We started the day early by arriving down at the Accenture Chicago Triathlon by 5:30 and she prepared her spot in the transition area. Her wave began at 7:01 and she was off. Approximately an hour and a half later, she finished the sprint distance. You can view a video of her crossing the finish line here.
It was a great day to be out and enjoying a premier event in a great city. We had fun. Again, congratulations, you did well!
