Saturday, May 21st Dale's sister Kae did the Houston Ironman in The Woodlands, Texas. The Ironman consist of a 2.4 mile swim, then on to a 112 mile bike and last but not least a full marathon run, yes, that is 26.2 miles. It was 90 degrees and humid. I was impressed by all those who were participating, but especially Kae. It was fun to be able to watch her run. We weren't able to see her swim or bike, but I guess it's hard to see them anyways. I did want to get a picture of her at the transition area between the bike and the run, but got there too late. I wish I had taken a picture of the transition area, but when I thought about it there was a person that had collapsed that they were attending to and that wouldn't be cool to take a picture of that.
Way to go Kae!!!!
Kae, Andy and Emily also spent Sunday with us, so we did get to visit for a short period of time before they headed back to Colorado.
