Ryan's Race

Ryan did a great job yesterday competing in the 70.3 1/2 Ironman World Championships.  It's a triathlon consisting of a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run.  He qualified for the World Championships last June at the Kona Honu 1/2 Ironman.  His sister Kipp, brother-in-law Andrew and friend Katie all flew with him to Florida to cheer him on.  They must have done a good job...he finished 9th in his age group, 91st overall (out of 1,600)!!!  He was pleased with his performance...yeah Ryan.  Kipp made GREAT shirts for the cheering section.  These photos are from her iPhone...so not the best, but you'll see what a good job she did.  Let's hear it for freezer paper...

Here's the graphic Kipp made from a photo of Ryan
Freezer paper cut out and ironed onto the t-shirt
