I DID IT! My first triathlon that is. I and two of my friends, Lisa and Louise (pictured below in the group photo), participated in the Gold Nugget Triathlon (GNT) a women only event in Anchorage, AK Sunday, May 20th. The swim was 500 yds in a pool (10 laps), the bike portion was 10 miles, and the run was 4.1 miles. There were over 1160 finishers and I placed 622 overall and 78th out of 156 in my age group. My goal was to finish in under 2 hours and I finished in 1 hour 45 minutes. The sun was shining, my family was there to help me celebrate, and Cedric ran out to greet me near the end of the race and even ran a few paces alongside me. I couldn't have asked for a better day.

Cedric is on his first tee-ball baseball team. I took a bunch of photos from the opening ceremonies and his first game. His team is comprised of 5 and 6 year olds, so basically "seasoned" players from the year before and players who had a steep learning curve that first hour. At first all the boys wanted to do was run the bases. Cedric couldn't contain himself, he ran out to the centerfield fence and back several times. He was always the first to the dugout and on the field. Cedric was the definition of hustle because he was so excited to finally be part of a baseball team. He has always loved baseball and since he is a lefty, Jim is already eyeing potential positions as a MLB pitcher since lefty pitchers are always in demand. Anyway here are some of the photos from that first day.
Blake wants to be just like his brother. Here is a picture of Blake being the catcher. He looks like a natural too. Maybe Cedric and Blake will be a dynamic pitcher_catcher team. A Mom can dream.... :-)
Welcome to the new WeatherDuo blog! Finally, I'll have a space to post new pictures, blurbs, and uploaded videos. Yes, I've finally figured out how to load video clips onto our computer. Hooray! Now I can inundate you all with videos and pictures that I find cute in one convenient location.
